Review: With or Without You By: Domenica Ruta

With or Without YouWith or Without You by Domenica Ruta
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Domenica Ruta has written a raw, no holds bar memoir. It is filled with such confessions that one at times cringes at it's revelation. A story of a dysfunctional family whose dynamics have been around generation after generation, from a grandmother that ran drugs for money, a mother that used drugs and loved strangers rather than her daughter.
This memoir is more than the smoke cloud room or a confessional, not a chronological beginning, but a deeper understanding of the journey that life takes you on. We are not determined by what has come before, what has happened, or even what we once did - it is the moment you step out and define yourself that the universe unfolds just as it should, and we can see this in this mercurial memoir.
