About the Book

As I reflect back to the early days of our marriage, I know there was no way to know that someday alcoholism would enter our world. It didn’t happen overnight, but moved in slowly. Meanwhile, I was deciding to stay – “One day at a time”. Over the years, prayer was my comfort - as laughter became the relief from the tears, listening to music became solace for my spirit, and writing the salve for my soul. In the “Jungle called Alcoholism” - the tears were many, the depressions deep, the frustrations unbearable at times, but we wouldn’t have traded our good times for any other time on earth. So, I choose not to dwell on the thorns, but to pause and remember – “A Tiger and all the Roses”. I know living through it does not qualify me to make decisions for anyone else. Everyone’s situation is unique to the addiction in their own lives. However, I present this book with my prayers for serenity and sobriety, and encourage anyone living in an addictive situation to reach out to the sources available to them, because where you go from there - Does Matter! Because it Matters - Fifty Percent of the profits from the sale of this book will go to “The Jack White Memorial Fund – to service and assist rehabilitation programs that meet the needs of alcoholics and their families”.

About the Author

The Author Nancy White is a graduate of Wilkes-Barre Business College, and a retired Financial Vice President. She is now working part time in an office near her home in Dallas, Pennsylvania, which affords her the time to enjoy her passions for reading and writing. “Tiger Pause” is the result of years of journaling, and was compiled as a promise and a tribute to her husband, who walked out of a “Jungle called Alcoholism”, and never looked back. A second book “Mornin’ Tiger” is in process, also from journal entries. It shares her journey, as she mourns the loss of losing her husband “The Tiger” to colon cancer. It is being written to support colon cancer research, and those that may be suffering the loss of a loved one to this disease. She plans to have it published in the near future.
