More than 28 million Americans are children of alcoholics, according to the National Association for Children of Alcoholics.
Rita Malie was one of them.
Growing up in the Midwest in the 1960’s in a steel mill town with an alcoholic father, she married young and struggled to complete her education and raise a family. Filled with disappointment, resentment and blame, she channeled her personal experiences into her semi-autobiographical second book.
Supreme Sacrifice introduces April, a young woman and mother who is struggling to deal with a wide variety of life’s issues and human tragedies. After being introduced to new spiritual tools and friends who help her deal with these issues, she gains power and internal strength to overcome adversities.
Malie hopes to inspire and show others how to bounce back from their lowest point and show how suffering can eventually lead to positive change, growth and success.
“My hope that by reading April’s journey, it may provide new markers, insights and understanding to others as to how they might have lost their way,” Malie says. “This will help them find their way to peace and empowerment.
Supreme Sacrifice captivates audiences with an eye-opening and revealing tale of self-discovery and the power of forgiveness.
