Selected by Indie Booksellers for the August 2010 Indie Notables
“Mary has long been one of my favorite writers, on account of both her writing and her fiery, passionate personality. Few writers out there could have written such a powerful and honest book about such an overlooked issue.”
-- Joe Foster, Maria's Bookshop, Durango, CO


What sets She Bets Her Life apart is Mary Sojourner's ability to take both an objective and a deeply personal look at the psychological and physiological impact of gambling addiction on women. Having lived it, Sojourner is brutally forthcoming, and with her penchant for research and fact-finding, the narrative is teeming with important information and resources to help steer women with gambling addictions (and their loved ones) toward help and healing.
