Sue Hamilton is quick to tell people she is not a writer. But the reviews of her book “Carried by Faith: From Substance Abuse to a Life Filled with Miracles” tell a different story.
“It’s getting reviews like a fiction book. People are writing things like, ‘I couldn’t put it down.’ To me, that’s not a review of a nonfiction memoir, which is what my book is,” says Sue. “I always tell people this was God telling my story the way He wants to because I am not a writer. “
“Carried by Faith: From Substance Abuse to a Life Filled with Miracles” shares the personal and candid story of the desperate and dangerous journey into drugs and alcohol. The book begins and ends with the story of Sue’s motorcycle accident, which she says should have taken her life. Instead, the accident changed her life and set her free. Sue says her story is for everyone.
“I shared my story in this book with the hopes that people who are substance abusers will relate and see that there is hope and that their families will see that too. Family members can feel so hopeless. I want them to know there is hope.”
You can purchase Sue’s book on her website, www.suelhamilton.com, on Amazon, Barnes and Noble online, as well as in stores in Minot, Bottineau, and Garrison. Sue will be sharing more of her story at the TEDx Talks in Bismarck on August 16.
