A story with a difference, this poignant autobiography is filled with real life drama. Embark on a nostalgic journey through the harsh Depression era and on through the hardships of the War years to the present day. Observe the vast changes that have brought us from the rigid and moralistic society of yesterday to the vastly different liberal mindset of today. The universal thread that runs throughout lends an air of familiarity. It is difficult not to identify with one of the characters-perhaps with the young girl herself in her struggles to persevere, or with the woman she ultimately becomes. Here is a story of contrasts from the depths of despair to the pinnacle of joy-a story that defies the odds. Here is a rendering that tugs at the heartstrings. Poignant, yet redeeming, this uplifting account will serve as an inspiration to all who struggle similarly-as well as to those who love them.

During his early teens, Jeff Bratton started using drugs. At first, alcohol and pot, but quickly he spiraled into using cocaine, ketamine, crystal meth and eventually heroin. How could this wonderful son, loving brother, and star athlete lose himself to drugs? How could his parents be so clueless? How could his mother, the long-term head of a private school, be so blind? "Stagli vicino", an Italian recovering addict told the author. "Stay close—never leave him, even when he is most unlovable." This is not a book about saving a child. It is a book about what it means to stay close to a loved one gripped by addiction. It is about one son who came home and one mother who never gave up hope. Stay Close is one mother's tough, honest, and intimate tale that chronicles her son's severe drug addiction, as it corroded all relationships from the inside out. It is a story of deep trauma and deep despair, but also of deep hope—and healing. Here is Libby Cataldi's story about dealing with addiction without withdrawing love, learning to trust again while remaining attuned to lies, and the cautious triumph of staying clean one day at a time. He told her, "Mom, never quit believing." And she didn't.

Carolyn and her husband Herbert came from two different worlds. She from a small town in West Virginia, and he from a small village in East Prussia. They each experienced a different kind of life during World War II. Herbert escaped death by the Russians, and the only act of war Carolyn saw was selling war bonds and standing in line for nylons for her mother until the telegraph came. Carolyn’s father was severely injured during a raid over Tokyo and would never be the same. Herbert’s family did not know if his father was dead or alive for the three years they were in a refugee camp after fleeing from the Russians.
