Early Praise for AFLOAT: Drug Addiction Through a Mother's Eyes x4

"Late last night I received a copy of Mechelle Leifson Wride's new book, Afloat. I started reading it around 10:00 AM this morning and between doing some housework and through lots of tears and some laughter I finished the book at noon. I just could not put her book down.

It is a must-read book for everyone (whether you are a parent, aunt, uncle, sister, brother, etc.) it is an amazing book to read especially for parents that have children with an addiction problem to drugs in their family as well as parents that are starting to raise their children in this unsettled world with drugs that are available anywhere. This book gives you hope and faith to know there is help and love and support from so many people. It is an amazing true story of a mother who has so much love for her sons that she is willing to do anything and everything for them until she learns the lesson of tough love and not enabling her children. It helps us realize there are amazing people, federal judges, and policemen out there who are willing to help in any way they can and to support and love those who are in a drug addiction situation. You will not waste your time reading this amazing book."

Elizabeth Wyman, former Nebo School District high school secretary, mother and grandmother
