A child caught in the horror of alcohol and drug addition. A mother helplessly standing by unable to save her. The Lost Years is the real life story of just such a mother and child, each giving their first-hand accounts of the years lost to addiction and despair. Kristina, the second of four children, tells how she turns to alcohol for comfort when she is thirteen. She gives a brutally honest description of her descent into addiction, prostitution, burglary and violent rape until her near death on the floor of a homeless shelter completely alone at the age of twenty-one. Adding a heart-wrenching counterpart to the story, Kristina's mother, Connie, tells of her powerlessness to help her addicted daughter, the break-up of her unhappy marriage and how she comes to terms with her own co-dependency. She is also faced with the worst choice a mother has to make, to close the door on Kristina, sending her onto the streets in order to save herself and protect her other children. Then follows the remarkable story of Kristina's recovery as she lives through rehab, her mother's tough love and the years of acclimating herself to living a normal life.

  1. Bulk Books Helping Bulk People 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 20th 2016

    The Iethinisten:ha-Akwesasne Family Wellness Program is a domestic violence shelter located on a native reservation straddling the US/Canada Border. We came across the Bulk Bookstore roughly two years ago, and have had phenomenal service each time we order. We typically order books in the realm of self-help, wellness, as well as a wide-variety of topics involved with domestic violence and the cycle of care for families. We ordered "The Lost Years" as a gift to our guests for our annual Celebration of Life conference, as this year's topic is 'intervention'. These books benefit our organization very much, as it keeps our educational resources updated and in stock for any new clients we may receive; we also distribute literature to the local reservation schools, to help keep their educational resources up to date in topics revolving around domestic violence, that are kid friendly. We love doing business with the Bulk Bookstore, as they have unbeatable prices (even for Canada). We look forward to doing more business with this company over the years.
