Suzanne Harrington did adult things long before she’d grown up – met Leo, married, had babies. She also partied, was homeless for a while, and drank herself to oblivion most nights. Waking to the wreckage of yet another lost weekend, she stopped drinking, and Leo, her companion and enabler, became a stranger. They separated. Freed from her demons, Suzanne embraced the world. Leo chose escape, and took his life. When they had grieved, and buried their father, Suzanne sat down to write for her children the story of Leo, and her journey to sobriety. Moving, compelling, disturbing and yet ultimately life-affirming, The Liberty Tree is a memoir of alcoholism, madness, survival and renewal.
