• Dark Wine Waters: My Husband of a Thousand Joys and Sorrows
The dynamics of codependency are brilliantly illuminated in this heartbreaking story of a marriage destroyed by the husband's addiction to alcohol. Author and widow, Dr. Frances Simone, describes the progression of the disease through all its stages, her husband's attempt at treatment and subsequent relapse, his suicide, and her own recovery through a twelve-step program for families.

“Fran Simone’s finely drawn memoir offers testament that love is not enough against the disease of addiction. In sensuous detail, she traces the progression of her husband’s alcoholism, the assault on a rich and loving marriage, and the ways they were twisted into strangers to one another and to themselves. This page-turner confirms that we are all more alike than different on the journey with an addicted loved one, and offers hope that the author’s recovery can be our own.”

“Fran Simone has written a memoir that provides a powerful and insightful firsthand account of the disease of addiction. She chronicles the progression of not only the disease, but also the baffling progression of denial that engulfs the addicted person, leaving family members bewildered, angry, and hurt. I was inspired by her journey, her willingness to tell her story, and the miracle of hope that finds root in tragedy.”

“You don’t have to be an alcoholic to deal with alcoholism. This is a compelling account for anyone who has ever tried.”
Charles Rubin

“Simone vividly recounts her own compelling journey with the insidious disease of alcoholism and her sustaining spiritual awareness of recovery. Dark Wine Waters: My Husband of a Thousand Joys and Sorrows is both a tribute and an awakening to those who struggle with addiction and for those who love them.”
