4.0 out of 5 stars Great read, 5 Nov 2011

This review is from: Walking on Broken Glass (Kindle Edition)
I bought this book simply because it was free at the time and I needed something to read travelling to and from work. If I am honest I was not expecting great things from it as other free books have been ok, but not something I would read once I got home. However, as with many things in life, I found it surprised me. I was almost sad when my journey finished as that meant I had to put the book down!
The basic story line is about an average, married, suburban women entering rehab to deal with her drinking problem. On the surface it has a uncomplicated storyline but the author makes it rich by the depth she gives to the characters that surround the lead. From the members of the rehab clinic to her supportive best friend and decidedly un-supportive husband, by the end of the novel you feel you know each of them almost as well Leah, the main character. Also, unlike some novels dealing with the issue of alcoholism and addiction, I don't think you need to have experienced the issues Leah is going through to get the most out of the novel.
It is a well written first person narrative and Leah's thoughts and reactions to the situation she finds herself in are so believable you find yourself getting really attached to the story. I believe that is the way a good novel should make you feel and I would suggest this novel to women of all ages as the content is accessible to anyone. I would happily pay the full price for this novel and I am now planning to read some more books published by this author.
