It is a story of self-discovery and redemption that takes the reader from the dregs of addiction to the promise of a better, more stable life.
Hunter Fitzgerald is a man of contradictions. A talented drummer and antisocial to the extreme, he prefers to go without being seen or heard, yet secretly harbors dreams of being the lead singer in his own band. Required to undergo treatment and therapy as a stipulation of receiving a disability settlement, Hunter is forced to come to terms with past traumas and reconcile them before he can get out of the depressive rut that he finds himself currently in. His newfound sobriety is tested by his family in the form of an enticing offer from his aloof older brother Kenneth as well as the co-dependent relationship he has with his overbearing younger sister Mary. But it’s the horrible news about his mother that brings all three of them together for the first time in years. Can Hunter stay sober through the mounting emotional stress or will his chance at salvation come up short?
