'Out Of The Fog!' is for those seeking a happy and joyous life, free from addiction. This is the inspiring story of a 35-year old woman whose skid row was a beautiful tree-lined street in the suburbs. She had everything— until Demon Rum crept in to steal it all away. The author shares how she learned to shove fear aside and step into a rewarding adventurous life. With 8 years of sobriety tucked into her lifejacket, Smith buys a 35-foot sailboat, teaches herself to sail, and embarks, mostly alone, sometimes with her rebellious teenaged daughter, on a 7-year spiritual odyssey in the Pacific. She follows the constellations (until a fellow boater points out that they move!) from San Francisco to the Polynesian Triangle somewhere off Easter Island. Smith's book offers a heart-warming, sometimes terrifying testament to triumph over adversity. "Out of the Fog!" provides painful but compelling insights into overcoming addiction as well as solving mother-daughter issues. The book illustrates the power of hope, faith and courage in facing the challenges of recovery and in healing fragile relationships.
