She until she realized that it wasn’t, and that her dishonesty could cost her everything she loved. What would happen to her marriage if things continued like this? And how could she be the mother of her young children if she was still trapped in this cycle of abuse? Deciding that she had to make a change, Ella Kim launched into a new life of sobriety seven months into the Covid-19 pandemic. But only after cutting the chains of slavery did she realize how much work remained to be done. Opening the doors to buried memories and past traumas was just the beginning.

The revision

At 38 years old, Kimberly Kearns seems to have the perfect life with a loving husband, three children, and a COVID pup. However, she hides a secret that is turning her life into a nightmare.

On the brink of shattered dispels the image that alcoholics are all bums sitting on street corners with brown bags hiding their prized drug. No, in this case it is about a wife and mother who uses alcohol as a means of escape while she tries to carry on as usual.

It’s a story about a woman who finally realizes that the pain caused by hungover mornings is no longer worth it. So, she takes the first step in acknowledging that she has a problem and then seeking help.

As readers follow his ongoing struggle with sobriety, Kearns uses alternate chapters to provide valuable context about his upbringing. Without the numbing effects of alcohol, he has to face his past in order to move on.

The story resonates with hard truths, but because it focuses on the author’s life, there are plenty of moments of celebration and time to laugh. By including both the ups and downs of his experience, the end result is real.

On the brink of shattered provides a compelling first-person account of being on the brink of losing everything and the difficult decision to change destructive behavior.
