Book Description

KardBoard House is a memoir. It tells the story of my son, Lucas' battle with opioid addiction, our journey and his subsequent death. It was written as a gift of hope to others sharing this tale and to offer the reader a personal view into the mind, heart and soul through Lucas' struggle. Its aim is to offer perspective, through Lucas' and my letters to one another, the power of addiction, the complexity of the human condition, and the reminder, despite all the love, that no one can chart the course of another's life no matter how hard they try.
