Katherine Ketcham devoted three decades to writing and teaching about addiction—but none of that prepared her for what she would face in her relationship with her own son. From the coauthor of the bestselling classics Under the Influence (with James R Milam; Bantam, 1984) and The Spirituality of Imperfection (with Ernest Kurtz; Bantam, 1993), The Only Life I Could Save brings readers a memoir of heartbreak, healing, and the continual journey of recovery from addiction.“This book is about the big know-it-all who realizes she doesn’t know a damn thing,” begins Ketcham. The Only Life I Could Save offers readers her hard-earned expertise on the impact of addiction on families, the relationship between spirituality and recovery, and “the most important lessons of faith, hope, acceptance, and forgiveness.
