Publisher's Summary

Sue Johnston, John Hannah and Eddie Marsan are among the stars of this spellbinding, hilarious and uplifting comedy drama. Set entirely at a series of weekly Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, these 13 episodes also feature Rebecca Front, Paul Kaye, Julia Deakin and Samantha Bond.

Love in Recovery follows the lives of five very different recovering alcoholics. Eddie Marsan is Andy, the sweet but simple group leader. Sue Johnston is Julie, who's been known to have the odd relapse here and there - and everywhere. John Hannah is Simon, a snide journalist with a big secret. Rebecca Front is the snobby and guarded Fiona, who used to be a banker who had it all and then lost the lot. Paul Kaye is Danno, a dodgy geezer with no front teeth but a lot of heart.

During the course of two series and a special Christmas episode, we hear them get to know each other, get on each other's nerves, laugh, argue, fall apart, fall in love and, most importantly, tell their stories.

Written and created by Pete Jackson, Love in Recovery is inspired by his own road to recovery.

    Story
    "Funny, moving, intelligent and all-round marvellous"
    Where does Love in Recovery: Series 1 & 2 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the most surprisingly touching and funny series I've heard in years.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    All of the performers were excellent, totally believable. Sue Johnston , John Hannah , Eddie Marsan , Rebecca Front , Paul Kaye , Julia Deakin , Samantha Bond.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The writing was sharp and funny, the story was surprising and the plot moved in unexpected ways.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't miss this unexpected gem!

    "awesome hard hitting realism with dark humour."

    jaw-droppingly good writing with a star cast. a thinking persons comedy drama. this was made for radio and shows why radio is still a force to be reckoned with

    "Radio Time Killer"

    it's not anything amazing but if your the sort of person that use to / or still do listen to radio 4 then this is a mundane comedy drama . the characters are a little catch cheesy especially the cleaner . but it's a pleasant time filler while your doing something else ,, that being said I've found too much in one go a bit too much ,. there's not much else to say as it covers it quite well in the synopsis ..

    Story
    "Lonely? Feeling low? Drink helping with problems?"

    Insightful, touching, humourous look at what happens in recovery (maybe).
    Meet a mixed band of brave people who attend a weekly meeting.
    Once you begin listening, Love In Recovery provides a glimpse into why people begin drinking, stop drinking, want to stop drinking. Because their tales are tragi-comic, you want to join them again and again to see how they're getting on.
    Genius put this car together.
