Book Review of We Are the Luckiest by Laura McKowen

We Are the Luckiest is a well-written sobriety memoir that describes the dark, painful times and how
drinking brought the author to her knees. Laura McKowen makes a compelling case that for her,
sobriety has allowed her to embrace her humanity and to discard the shame. In her transformed life of
redemption, she can feel her feelings, live honestly, and be there for her daughter. She is so grateful
that she could recover, which has allowed her to “wake up” and establish a new legacy. Thank you, Laura McKowen!
