Recovering from Life - kindle ebook by Debra McKenna

A story of humor, hijinks, and hope. 
Thirty-nine-year-old Stephanie McCarthy has been blindsided.  Her husband, Kenny, is M.I.A., and Steph's just discovered a washtub of unpaid bills along with a love letter from Kenny to another woman.  He's absconded with their money and been cheating on her for months.   To top off these traumatic discoveries, the next day a hoodlum looking for Kenny comes to Steph's home--Kenny owes the thug thousands of dollars, and the guy wants to get his hands on Kenny.

Recovering from Life is the tale of Steph's rollicking road to redemption.  A freelance writer in Northern California, Steph has been working days hawking frozen foods while her life limped along.  But now her husband has disappeared--into the crack ghetto.  And Steph is catapulted onto a wild ride of survival.  Some days the ride feels unendurable, but with a wisecracking buddy by her side, along with other surprising allies, Steph stays afloat while marooned in a state of financial doom, legal tangles, and emotional turmoil.

Steph's spunk and courage help her navigate a new path, which takes her into the realms of drug dealers, high finance--and hot romance.  And along the way, she stumbles into her own blind spots and wrestles with her faulty guy-radar.  She finds love, loses it, and finds it again.  

When Steph at last spies the "Welcome to Reality" sign at the end of the road, she knows the roller coaster of recovery and personal triumph have reshaped her life--and along the way, she had one hell of a good time.
