Surviving Smoking Mirrors: My Reflection is a candid chronicle of Alliey’s tumultuous relationship with Josh, tracing its journey from the beginning to its bitter end, and the myriad challenges she faced along the way. Following the collapse of their marriage, Alliey finds herself entangled in a complex property settlement while enduring ongoing gaslighting and abuse from Josh. Concurrently, Josh plunges into a hedonistic lifestyle.

Amidst these trials, Alliey’s son, Camden, begins to show worrying injuries following visits with Josh, adding to her mounting concerns. As Alliey grapples with supporting Camden, her own battle with anorexia spirals dangerously out of control, threatening to cost her everything. This story is a raw and unflinching exploration of the struggles faced in the aftermath of a tumultuous relationship, highlighting the resilience and determination needed to persevere through adversity.

Alliey Rutledge is a first-time Australian author. She has a legal background having studied a Bachelor of Law and Arts (majoring in journalism), and is looking to transition into a career in writing. She hopes to use her memoir and legal background as a platform to pursue advocacy work in the fight against domestic violence.

    Loved it! Read it in one weekend.

  • Roslyn Pay

    This is an intriguing story where Alliey writes about narcissistic abuse, and the effect it has had on her, and her son. It is a very compelling read, hard to put the book down.
