Regular price $41.00

When Kelley M. Moore’s youngest daughter was seventeen and a senior in high school, her entire world changed with the discovery of her daughter’s alcohol and drug addiction. In her inspiring memoir, Moore shares the road to recovery through the eyes of a mother, the intense emotional and physical turmoil it takes on not only the person afflicted with the disease, but to the family unit as a whole. She learns through her daughter’s journey to sobriety of the generational effects, the inheritance of the disease from one generation to the next, and the steps families can take to provide a positive and honest atmosphere for a family member’s healing. 

Moores own journey is a testament to the enormous role family can play in recovery. While her daughter fought, and still fights, to maintain sobriety, mother, father, sister, and daughter find themselves absorbed into new roles, and discover new lifelong passions for aiding others on their road to recovery.

An unwelcome gift

Sometimes we inherit something we never expected or would have desired. Kelley Moore’s Inheritance demonstrates the power of resiliency and parental love. Anyone who has been in an “I should have seen that coming” situation will learn that they are not alone.

This book will make you feel seen. Understood. The Let Go Poem on page 111-112 is something I read daily to remind myself of not only what I need to remember, but that there are others that have walked my path.

Sharing is healing.

I was riveted reading the book. It is certainly a page-turner. I am so grateful that she shared her experience with addiction in her family. There is so much shame behind the secrets and whispers of addiction. Her candor and real life experience offers the reader hope and helps remove the 'shame' stigma of addiction. Yes, there can be a light at the end of that long addiction tunnel. She reveals how addiction can be an inheritance that can slowly creep in a family, ANY family, with no warning. I believe that there are so many stories out there that need to be told. It is my hope that Kelly, will continue to reveal this ugly demon that has infiltrated many unsuspecting lives. Facing challenges 'head-on' can bring so much healing, light, and love. Where is the shame in that?
