AnnE O'Neil's New Memoir Looks at Relationship Between Grief, Alcoholism and Recovery

In her candid new memoir, "If You Want the Rainbow, Welcome the Rain: A Memoir of Grief and Recovery" (published by Balboa Press), author AnnE O'Neil takes readers on a personal journey of loss, grief and healing, sharing her story in the hopes that it will show others facing similar situations that recovery is possible.

"If You Want the Rainbow, Welcome the Rain" looks at the damage done to one's life and soul when the pain of grief is suppressed. After her father passed away from liver cancer, O'Neil was forced to take a look at her own life as she coped with the devastating loss. She writes about how she was forced to confront her alcoholism and details the slow process of transitioning into a spiritual, sober life.

O'Neil's transformation was a healing process on many levels – healing from grief, despair and decades of inauthentic living. As she learned how to cope with her grief in a healthy manner, she found that it opened up a world of new possibilities for joy, freedom and a rich life. Her story is a resounding testament to the power of faith and shows what is possible when grief is honored and transcended.

Praise for "If You Want the Rainbow, Welcome the Rain"

"With admirable honesty, O'Neil recounts her journey from family dysfunction and alcoholism to a life of spiritual exploration and understanding."

--Susan Richards, New York Times best-selling author
