The Liberty Tree : Drunk to Sober Via Love, Death, Disintegration & Freedom Paperback


Suzanne Harrington did all the things that adults do, long before she'd grown up: met Leo, married, had babies.

She also partied, was homeless for a while, and drank - and drank.

She headed towards disintegration, with Leo at her side, locked deep in himself.

Then, waking to the wreckage of yet another lost weekend, she stopped drinking - and Leo, her companion and enabler, became a stranger.

They separated. Newly sober, and freed from her demons, Suzanne embraced life.

Leo chose escape. Early one morning the police arrived. A body had been found hanging from a tree. When it was all over, and Suzanne had buried Leo, and helped her children to grieve, she sat down and wrote the story of their father's life.

This is for them. It is for the memory of Leo. It is also for anyone who has partied too hard, found life unbearable, avoided the truth.

It is like nothing you have read before, or will read again.

It is touching, hilarious, brutally honest and utterly compelling.
