J.E. Hopkins has done a wonderful job of bringing to fore an issue that is seriously impacting many young lives. Alex is the typical drug addict who will trade anything and everything to fuel his need for drugs. He is so lost in life and has lost so much due to his drug habit that he doesn't even think he deserves better. Leah comes across as a strong character whose only flaw is that she loves Alex blindly and will do anything for him. The book does not sugar coat the struggle that being in rehab can be. It gives one hope that it is possible to return from the path of doom and start over. -- Reviewed by Dr. Oliva Dsouza for Readers' Favorite
"I have never taken an illegal drug in my life, yet drugs have taken away so much of my life. They have left me raw and alone. They’ve broken my heart, crushed my spirit, seized my light, and blinded me with darkness. Drugs have left me in pieces that no longer fit together. This is what it feels like to love an addict. This is what it feels like when an addict loves his drugs more than you."
From the moment she first laid eyes on him, Leah knew her heart would forever belong to Alex. At three-years-old on her first day of school she met her soul mate. For the past eighteen years, their love remained strong overcoming every obstacle determined to break them apart. But now a new, insidious foe threatens to destroy them—the white powder, heroin.
Alex is torn between the love that consumes his heart and the white powder that consumes his mind. Unable to escape the call of the white powder, heroin leads Alex down a dark path to destruction while Leah fights to save her childhood love before they both drown in his disease of addiction.
The story continues in the sequel, Forever my Francesca.
