Dear Jack was a trip down memory lane, good and bad. As someone who battles with addiction everyday it was an eye opener to see what the outcome of continuing down the dead end path was. It was heartfelt, emotional, but most importantly REAL. There are no filters in this book. You get all the honesty in what addiction brings to not only the person suffering but the people around the person suffering. I make sure to read this book everyday as a constant reminder of what true love is, what heartache brings and what a mother’s love is supposed to be. Thank you Barbara for being the most courageous person I know by showing your scars and sharing them with the entire world. I love this book and everything it stands for!
