WOODBRIDGE – Westfield resident Veronika Jordan will sign copies of her autobiography, “You Have the Right to Remain Silent: From Prison to the Promised Land” at Borders Express in the Woodbridge Center Mall on Saturday, June 26, from 1-3 p.m.
Forty-year-old Jordan seemed to have it all: a home in Los Angeles with her husband and two sons, a nursing job she loved, and the nice things she’d always wanted. But she still couldn’t find the approval she secretly sought.
Soon her life was spiraling out of control, and she found herself in the one place she never expected to be: prison. Two years later, when Jordan is released, she finds her world is still upside down. She turns to the bottle to soothe away her pain and soon ends up on the same path as her husband—that of an alcoholic. But unlike her husband, she finally turns to Alcoholics Anonymous and God for help. Just as she’s beginning to feel confident and on track again, a family tragedy takes her back to her past, where she realizes she has more to face than alcohol addiction.
