Book Description:

​Before she stopped drinking for good, Kim was lying to herself and everyone she knew about her daily habit—sneaking morning sips of vodka behind her husband’s back, emptying bottles of wine and hiding the evidence from her family, and convincing herself that nothing was wrong and everything was under control. Until she realized that it wasn’t, and that her dishonesty could cost her everything she loved. What would happen to her marriage if things continued in this way? And how could she be a mother to her young children if she remained trapped in this cycle of abuse? Deciding she had to make a change, Kim threw herself into a new life of sobriety seven months into the Covid-19 pandemic. But only after severing the chains of bondage did she realize how much work there was still to do. Opening the doors to buried memories and past traumas was only the beginning. Throughout her journey to sobriety, Kim would come to terms with the secrets and lies told by her parents and loved ones, allowing her a clarity and freedom she never before thought possible.

My Review

Kimberly Kearns does not hold back in her On The Edge of Shattered: A Mother’s Experience of Discovering Freedom Through Sobriety. I admired her courage in telling her story and determination to help those who are affected by alcohol and addictions. She tells how she took back her power and how she faced her demons and trauma by getting sober and learning how to heal. She was able to come to realize how she needed to do so for herself and able to break the chains to become free from it. I know so many readers would be able to connect with the words within the pages and understand the struggles the author endured to find her freedom. Other readers would get a better understanding how many become so dependent on alcohol and other substances. I know I have learned to be less judgmental and more compassionate by reading the author’s story. 

I am giving On The Edge of Shattered: A Mother’s Experience of Discovering Freedom Through Sobriety a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy reading memoirs and how people are able to overcome turmoil, trauma and addictions in their lives. Kimberly Kearns has a special ability to speak to her readers and would love for her to continue to write books to inspire her readers. 

I received a paperback copy of On The Edge of Shattered: A Mother’s Experience of Discovering Freedom Through Sobriety from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
