Author Marjorie Eldredabout this book: Confused and lost, thinking no one loves you? Missing an important connection with a family member or boyfriend? Wondering if you should escape into the world of alcohol or drugs? Pick up this book and wonder no more. Bobbi Branson has experienced it for you, and she shares in her letters to her mother the path drugs put her on, the frustration she feels behind bars, and the life experiences addiction cost her. Sentenced to twelve and one-half years, living with thieves and murderers, hope seems gone; she avoids relationships, fearing they will be sources of trouble. But there is One whom she can trust, and her growing relationship with God strengthens and helps her through the experiences she must endure. The habits Bobbi relearned in prison—prayer, Bible reading, trust, hard work, service, and patience—continue to make her a leader in her life on the outside.

I wrote this book because I watched this young woman serve this prison sentence; I realized she offered a real-life example of a way to escape addiction. I felt her pain and saw the losses, not only to her but to her entire family. If this family's experience, I thought, can help others who find themselves in similar circumstances, that result would well justify the time and effort it would take to compile these letters. So I did. The result is Journey from Addiction to Freedom: A Family's Prison Experience. I hope your journey as you read will enrich your life.
