Unicorn: Addiction, Guilt and a Decision That Will Change Her Life

Scarlet has the life most only dream about—she travels the world, she makes plenty of money and she has the best friend anyone could ask for.
But, piece by piece, her world is falling apart because of her damaged family, years of resentment and her sister’s drug and alcohol addiction. Scarlet tries to keep it together, but when her sister desperately needs help, Scarlet has to make a decision that will change every part of her life. Unicorn is a story of internal struggle, choices, and a broken family.

This book is amazing!!! I am a recovering alcoholic and have loved many folks who are addicts too! The Author did an amazing job of bringing the characters to life! I read the book in two days, and usually I am a slow reader!

How do you love safely? How do you love without hurting the addict?
In the story “Unicorn” Amelia’s mother and sister struggle with these questions.

I’ve experienced the crazy-making behavior addicts inflict on family and friends.
But I’ve also witnessed the miracles of sobriety.              -L.E. Get
