Chattanooga author Celia Marie Anzalone has lived anything but a boring life. In the center of a messy divorce as a child to extreme drug problems as a young adult, she recounts her life as a drug addict in her new book releasing nationwide this month, “Celia's Eyes: A Life of Love, Drugs, and Redemption.”
"Recovery may be a long road, but Anzalone says that with the help of God, she was able to find balance in her life while letting go of the past and accepting who she is now. Not leaving anything out, the book tells the bizarre—and at times, embarrassing—story that was her life—stolen cars, abusive boyfriends, forgotten friends, and much more. She may have lived more than a difficult life, but she believes finding God allowed her to forgive herself for mistakes she’s made and accept the young person she's become," said a review of the book.
"This whirlwind journey is bound to inspire readers as Anzalone weaves in and out of memories of a past life in this tantalizing memoir. Celia's Eyes is an inspiring story that shows how one girl, with all the odds against her, can turn them in her favor, building a new life from the ground up."
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher atwww.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
