Synopsis

Instant New York Times and USA Today Bestseller
From the moment she uttered the brave and honest words, "I am an alcoholic," to interviewer George Stephanopoulos, Elizabeth Vargas began writing her story, as her experiences were still raw. Now, in BETWEEN BREATHS, Vargas discusses her accounts of growing up with anxiety-which began suddenly at the age of six when her father served in Vietnam-and how she dealt with this anxiety as she came of age, to her eventually turning to alcohol for relief. She tells of how she found herself living in denial, about the extent of her addiction and keeping her dependency a secret for so long. She addresses her time in rehab, her first year of sobriety, and the guilt she felt as a working mother who had never found the right balance.
Honest and hopeful, BETWEEN BREATHS is an inspiring read.

I believe she truly wanted to share her story with others in the hopes that those who are going through a similar ordeal will feel some comfort knowing they are not alone in their battle with this terrible disease. Vargas has succeeded in achieving this important objective.
