In The Lois Wilson Story When Love Is Not Enough by William G. Borchert, the author, who is also a screenwriter, explores the life and times of Lois Burnham Wilson, the spirited creator of Al-Anon and wife of Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder Bill Wilson.
From her privileged childhood in turn-of-the-century New York City to her socialite status as the 'Wall Street Wife' of the charismatic Bill in the roaring '20s to the couple's audacious cross country motorcycle excursions in the 1930s, Lois was every bit the adventure-seeker. But nothing could have prepared her for the chaos, anguish, and loss caused by Bill's seventeen-year descent into the depths of alcoholism.
Also in The Lois Wilson Story by William G. Borchert the author reveals how the couple rose from a life of despair to institute one of the twentieth century's most important social movements, and how Lois created a legacy of hope for millions of families devastated by addiction through her uncommon love and unshakable faith.
Lastly, the author drew from a series of exclusive personal interviews with Lois Wilson to write The Lois Wilson Story by William G. Borchert.
