Reviews: FROM DEATH DO I PART
"From Death Do I Part is the account of a soul journey: a journal of liberation,authentically lived, deeply experienced and vividly written. The inspiring story of one person, it speaks to the challenges faced by many and to the possibilities inherent in us all."
--- Gabor Mate M.D., author of Canada's #1 best seller, In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters With Addiction"
Amy Lee Coy has written the story of how she reclaimed her life from abuse and addiction. Every person can learn these essential things from her efforts: it is never too late to change; your life is in your own hands; the cure to the "disease" of alcoholism is realizing who you are; life can be a joy when you reject your fear; every human life has value. It is uplifting to read her discovery of these things because her gentle presentation of her truths is free of ego, jargon, and any sense that she deserves special consideration."
--- Stanton Peele, Ph.D., J.D., author of Love and Addiction, 7 Tools to Beat Addiction, Addiction Proof Your Child and more.
Whether you are struggling with addiction or know someone who is, this book will help you to understand how to move forward when all paths seem blocked or pointless. A guide to recovery as well as a beautiful story of triumph and accomplishment, this book brings the warm light of wisdom to the harsh realities of addiction. From Death Do I Part is a book you will return to again and again as you reflect on its healing words."
--- John Bardi, Professor of Philosophy, Penn State University
"One board member told us that she began reading the book on Friday night and could not put it down until she finished it the next morning. Obviously, Amy’s book is an invaluable resource for those struggling with addiction. And it is equally invaluable for parents and siblings whose family member died from substance abuse and who need a deeper understanding and release from the guilt of the “what ifs.” But, beyond that, From Death Do I Part offers hope and inspiration to anyone lost in deep feelings of how “bad” life can be. That, of course, should just about cover all of us. And though Amy’s wisdom in this book is timeless, her delivery of it is very "now."" (read the complete review here -PDF)

"In her darkest moment, determined that whatever she learned she would share, Amy chose to be her own ally and to lift herself into a healthier life. As she says, 'This is the book I wanted in my moment of terror, desperation and defeat.' She believes, 'Something encouraging happens when you intend to help others.' This is her courageous story."
--- Ellen Seely, MFT
"Amy will clearly make an important contribution to the people who struggle with addiction, and to their loved ones as well."
--- Paige Marrs, Ph.D.
"Amy blesses us by sharing her personal inner and outer journey with a rare honesty and clarity that enlightens and enriches us all. The specifics of her journey are about recovery from addiction, but her compassion and wisdom hold valuable lessons for those on any journey of healing."
--- Chris Ternand, M.D.
"This writer's voice is dynamic and fresh, so courageous-outrageous, that her book would be important even if she wrote about something trivial. Yet trivial her topic is not. Amy Lee Coy has written a life-and-death story, based in real-life heroism, where she described some of the most moving spiritual evolution you'll ever find between covers.
In this courageous book, the now better-than-rehabbed author describes how she found the strength to reclaim her life. What summoned the miracle? It was Amy Lee Coy's desire to help others as well as an uncommonly analytical path of self-discovery.
Even if you never have struggled with an addiction of any kind, you will surely find Amy's story inspiring."
--- Rose Rosetree, award winning teacher of personal development, healer, and author of the bestseller Aura Reading Through All Your Senses and more.
