Until When is It Enough?

Author weaves an honest, eye-opening story of how husbands battle the challenges of living with alcoholic wives 

For most people, the norm is having a wife deal with an alcoholic husband. Many don’t realize that there are husbands everywhere who also have to stand their ground and keep their sanity while dealing with alcoholic wives. In the story “Walk a Little Slower Daddy”, author A.L. Ford Jr puts the spotlight on this not-so-talked about issue in society, hoping to give a voice to those who can’t be open or seem to be embarrassed to share about it.

Readers will follow Lee James as he tries to be a good husband, father and businessman while trying to overcome the challenges of living with an alcoholic partner. In this story, many male spouses will relate to the thoughts and emotions of Lee James, through his eyes and experiences of dealing with his alcoholic wife Alex, and raising their daughter Stella. While trying to maintain running a business and keeping his family together, Lee questions himself in his ability to be strong enough for his daughter along with dealing with his wife Alex. Though Alex seems to want to get things together, sometimes the grasp she has on the bottle is much tighter than the grasp on her family.

Will Lee be strong and kind enough to do it all? Or will it just be too much to handle on his own? Readers will find out as they follow their family and struggles in “Walk a Little Slower Daddy”.
