Jamie Blaine and Vicky
Lanzone became friends after Vicky signed up for an online
marriage support site. The story unfolds when, late one night,
Vicky writes that the weight is too heavy and each day is a battle
to survive. She admits there are pills and the note is written.
Jamie replies: Instead of ending your life, why not try changing it
first? What do you really have to lose?
Florida Writer Podcast host Alison Nissen chats with Jamie and Vicky about their
woven memoir about finding hope in strange places.
