Book Title: If You Change The Words You Change The Meaning Author: Ellen Allen Published By: Your Time Publishing Recommended Age: 18+ Reviewed By: Lee-Ann Graff-Vinson Blog Reviewed For: Great Minds Think Aloud Rating: 3.5 It happens often in life. The addiction becomes too strong. Breaking away and recovering your life, your soul, flees farther from your grasp. Liz watched her best friend, her confident, her lover and husband become consumed by his drug demon. Her loving Able turning into deviant Cane before her eyes. What can a woman do when faced with the drama of watching her man self destruct? How can she save him without losing herself? Author, Ellen Allen takes us on a personal journey of tortured souls. Her writing speaks as if straight from life’s journal of sorrow and pain. Sharing is the first step to healing. Ellen’s story offers a way to rebuild through the eyes of experience. Although I found the heroine to be a bit repetitious in her views and thoughts, I do believe this was necessary in order to truly feel and understand the kind of power drug addiction has over a person’s soul. Ms. Allen’s novel tells the realities of substance abuse and how faith of self can bring you back from a life choice of destruction.
