Title: Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton

Book Beginnings:
I was loved. If love could prevent pain, I'd never have suffered.
Friday 56:
The priest is watching me shake and I know he's thinking that I'm some sort of junkie, and I am, but I'm also just cold.
Comment: Love Warrior is a memoir by Glennon, a bulimic-alcoholic. It is about love and loneliness, family, and getting well.
