Married to Merlot: A Memoir With a Message of Hope
Martha Louise, author
Married to Merlot is a true story of love and loss, of one man’s vulnerability and fragility after experiencing the trauma of the Vietnam War, and of one woman’s desperate attempt to make sense of her shattered world and the tragic events that occur. It is a chronicle of the progression of his depression, anxiety and alcoholism and the toll his sinking mental health takes on his family. Within the book’s pages the author describes her own desperation and her desire to heal and maintain her emotional health, as she strives to weather each storm, embrace her losses, and accept her destiny.
