                                         “MOST OF US NEVER GET THIS CLOSE TO THE FLAME”

Why would a middle class white woman fall in love with a convicted felon from Harlem?

 Rebecca Allard, Author of Reckless: A Memoir, shares her story of addiction to danger and the journey she took to reclaim her heart, mind and soul.

 “Reckless reads like a psychologically-nuanced thriller, and is all the more riveting because of Rebecca Allard’s insistence on discovering her own responsibility in her near destruction. The intense push-pull of attraction to danger is beautifully rendered and devastating. Most of us never get this close to the flame.” – Philip Gerson is an award-winning playwright, screenwriter and television writer, whose credits include Murder, She Wrote and Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.

 “Reckless is an intimate articulated psychological treatise of a woman who, in the vulnerability of her youth, fell in love with and married a psychopath.” –  Catherine McCall, LMFT, and international bestselling author of Never Tell, A True Story of Overcoming a Terrifying Childhood.

Rebecca Allard began her professional acting career in 1971 and later became director of technology implementation for a Fortune 500 accounting and auditing firm. Her story begins in her Texas birthplace and unfolds in New York City in the ’70s and ’80s. Read more at www.recklessamemoir.net.

First review of RECKLESS: A Memoir!

5.0 out of 5 stars 
A strong memoir of contemporary significance May 11, 2014

By Catherine McCall, author of UK bestseller, “Never Tell”
Format:Paperback
“RECKLESS is an intimately articulated, superbly crafted story of an emotionally vulnerable young woman’s journey, as she falls in love with a psychopath, struggles through the gut-wrenching complexities of marriage to him, and ultimately discovers her path toward healing, liberation, and strength. As a therapist and teacher, I kept thinking it could be an apt companion to WOMEN WHO LOVE PSYCHOPATHS by Sandra Brown. But RECKLESS also includes other themes of contemporary importance as well: mental illness, interracial marriage, drug addiction, sex addiction, psychotherapy, the arts. As a native New Yorker I enjoyed that most of Rebecca’s story takes place in New York. But I don’t mean to imply that RECKLESS is an enjoyable read. It’s dense; it’s intense; it will make you work; and the strength of the writing will guide you through to a deeper understanding of marriage and family dynamics, child development, psychological process, and wisdom.”
