Review

'I can only think of two other books I've ever read that struck me like this one. It was a fantastic, unforgettable read' Reviewedthebook. (Reviewedthebook)

'A moving, sensitive and thought-provoking exploration of the nature of addiction and its impact on family life. It's also an uplifting love story with a vulnerable heroine who has looked for love in all the wrong places in the past and has to face up to her worst fears when the real thing comes along' Alison Mercer. (Alison Mercer)

'Alice Peterson at her best. Polly's story made me smile and made me cry ... Together with a cast of beautifully drawn characters, Polly's journey will keep you guessing and make you root for her with all your heart. A book that won't fade easily from your memory. More, please, Alice?' Daniela Sacerdoti, author of Take Me Home. (Daniela Sacerdoti)

'Warm, and refreshingly honest. I couldn't recommend it more' Girlswholove2read. (Girlswholove2read)

'Compelling from the very start, this book was almost impossible to put down' Handwrittengirl. (Handwrittengirl)

'Wow! I absolutely loved this book! I almost missed my train stop, I was so engrossed ... I couldn't put it down. What a beautiful, uplifting, unconventional love story' Paige Toon. (Paige Toon)

'A very inspiring read that is heart wrenching at times and yet uplifting and sometimes humorous too. This is a beautiful read and I absolutely loved it' Rea book review. (Rea book review)

'A poignant book about addiction, romance and non-traditional families, but most of all it's an inspirational story' Woman's Way. (Woman's Way)

I have had this book in my Kindle for a while but it always was overlooked for another. I'm so glad that I actually got around to reading it. It was one of those books that you don't want to put down. There were a few surprising twists, which made you want to read more. I have a couple more by Alice Peterson. I will be reading them next ☺

I really enjoyed this book by Alice Peterson. The book deals with alcoholism and how this addiction can destroy the lives of those around you. The story itself is about Polly's journey from childhood to a mother and secrets that are kept from her as well as her relationship with an abusive boyfriend. Life is just not straightforward.

Another great book by Alice Peterson. This is my second book of this author and I loved both of them. Amazing book and great story. This book tells the story about real life and how people cope in difficult situation. How support of someone close to you or family can get you out of dark side. Absolutely great book.
