If You Really Love Someone…

Mrs. Anthony Author Interview

I Am Woman is your memoir sharing with the world the challenges you faced living with an alcoholic husband and all you endured to keep your marriage and family together. Why was this an important book for you to write?

It was important for me to write this book to heal and come to terms with all that I endured with Tony. I had hesitated a few times, I cannot deny, but was finally able to relive some very painful moments. I felt it necessary to share my experiences with the world. Tony was a wonderful man until drink overwhelmed him.

I appreciated the candid nature with which you told your story. What was the hardest thing for you to write about?

It was definitely hard to write about the time that he fell seriously ill and declined. I had to leave the computer many a time, wondering if I could even see my memoir through. If not for the encouragement from my daughter (my best friend), and my granddaughter (my personal cheerleader), you might never have read this book.

What is a common misconception you feel people have about marriage?

Marriage is definitely far from a fairy tale, but, it helps you to evolve spiritually if handled with love and tenderness. – and tons of patience.

What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your story?

If you really love someone, give it your all.

Myriad women out there have suffered due to their husbands’ weaknesses. While many have called their marriage a day and walked away, some have tried to hold on and salvage their union, hoping that their love is strong enough to bring forth a miracle. When children are at stake, they try even harder, hoping to provide the unfettered love of both parents.
This book was painstakingly-written to relate my true journey and endless attempts to save my union and husband. I tried even harder because he was truly a gem of a man. It has taken me years to muster the courage and will to revisit some of the most painful moments in my life. It is only close to his 23rd year of demise that I have come to terms with all he had done and feel that now I have his blessing to share my journey with the world. All women are my sisters and it is in the name of this sisterhood that I bring forth my life’s journey to share. Life is not over, for I have learnt to survive. How I have survived is yet another story.
