Nineteen-year-old Amanda Andruzzi had never forged a strong connection with any man before she met twenty-three-year-old Jim. But when he walked toward her on the night of their first date, Amanda’s reluctance slipped away. As she became lost in his dimpled smile and green eyes, Amanda could have never known that three years later she would embark on a dark, long path lined with addiction, lies, and fraud. In her inspirational memoir, Amanda shares an intense glimpse into her twelve-year relationship with a high functioning addict and con artist who manipulated and controlled every situation to provide for his own twisted needs. As she describes living with an addict, Amanda reveals how she slowly began to uncover the truth about the father of her child—a man who defrauded clients and close family members out of millions. Although she had the resources and knowledge to obtain help, Amanda discloses how she still felt alone, frightened, and mentally battered. It was only after she exhausts every outlet that she finally learned to let go and allow the healing process to begin. Hope Street is the inspirational story of one woman’s frightening journey of co-addiction that eventually led her to discover the courage and inner strength to overcome great adversity.

In this hugely enlightening book, Carol Foreman investigates the origins of many of Glasgow's street names, examining the influences and inspirations for many of the city's most famous thoroughfares, from local association and sentimentality to the influence of royalty, distinguished individuals and historical events. There is a story in the name of almost every street and district in Glasgow, with some even bearing names bestowed on them in Pagan times, long before Glasgow could even be called a city.As well as street names, the origin of districts such as Cowcaddens, Gorbals and Polmadie are given along with those of the River Clyde, the Molendinar Burn and some buildings with unusual names such as the Bucks Head building in Argyle Street. This new revised edition examines the famous street names in the city centre from the M8 to the north bank of the River Clyde, to Glasgow Green and Bridgeton in the east and to Kingston Bridge in the west, with new material examining the Gorbals and the West End of the city, and with newly acquired illustrations and photography.
