Summary

Romilly had worked hard for her stunning house in one of Bristol's most fashionable suburbs. She adored her daughter and handsome husband, and sure, life was sometimes exhausting - but nothing that a large glass of wine couldn't fix.

But then, as deep-buried insecurities surfaced, everything started to unravel. A glass of wine became a bottle; one bottle became two. Once, Romilly's family were everything to her. Now, after years of hiding the drinking, she must finally admit that she has found another love....

Lost for words

Just finished this utterly thought provoking and sentimental read. So many memories of my own journey through hell’s corridors to the sunlight and happiness I survive today. I’ll re-read again one day to serve as a reminder how close we come to the ledge, how much we lose but equally how much we gain when we accept and reach out, I heartily ask you to read this if you are still struggling to find acceptance for this hideous disease.

Heart breaking

I found it heartbreaking and well written. I think if you had drinking illness or have had to stop drinking go some reason, you would feel the pain of the main character and the upset it causes to everyone round the person with the illness.

Great book

This story really touched me and made a lot of things clear for me. I absolutely loved the letter, without giving anything out… great narration.

An eye opening journey.

I found it both a compelling but sad story,showing the slippery slope to alcoholism. It flowed well and I could imagine the characters in my head easily as good description throughout. I also found the narration by the author very easy to listen to. Which made it more enjoyable.

Perceptive telling of a difficult tale.

This is a compelling, insightful story of the awfulness of alcoholism for one family. It neither sugars, nor overdramatises the issues. It does not pull punches, nor fall into cliched romance. It loses a star due to being a little overwritten. One example of this is when the protagonist popped to a shop for some milk and "the coins were nestling in her hand"! There was quite a lot of this. I think I would have found it more off-putting if I had been reading the book. Thankfully, the narrator read in a very straightforward way, such that between us, I found could largely ignore extraneous stuff.

a bit too mills and boon for me..

For me it felt like everything was exaggerated, gorgeous flowing hair full of lustre... heaving bussoms.. probably not helped by the very breathy narration... I found the narration annoying, coupled with the over exaggeration too much, I abandoned it... sorry.
