A gripping memoir of trauma, addiction, & survival.

This hard-hitting tale of redemption offers a powerful message of healing despite seemingly insurmountable odds.

The author, Rachel K. Baldwin, 2003 vs. 2015

RECOVERY IS POSSIBLE

I am living proof

The long & short of it is this: I’m a recovering black-out artist, stay-at-home-dog-mom, & serial overcomer, but you can just call me Rachel.

I’m a second-chance enthusiast at heart & the most fallible of any human I’ve met.

Gratitude. That’s where I abide, man. All the time. No matter what.

Against Such Things: A Memoir is my first book.
