Summary
Annie was an unlikely candidate for meth, and A Very Fine House is her mother s story of despairing loss, impossible choices, and ultimately a celebration---of a beloved daughter, an enduring family, and a loving God too big for the box many wish to put him in
Summary
A Very Fine House is an intimate memoir of a mother's Norman Rockwell family turned upside down by her daughter's descent into meth addiction and crime. Bright and beautiful, Annie is an unlikely candidate for meth. Living fast and hard on the streets of Bend, Oregon, she commits crimes against herself, the community, and her own family. The author chronicles her child's addiction in a way that other writers have not written about addiction. What begins as an obsession to save her daughter, and a rage against God for allowing drugs to devour her college-age girl, transforms into release in a life changing letting-go-and-letting-God moment
