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.

A wake up call

Of al the many Books out there I will recommend this book to all who struggles with control over alcohol.
This was a real wake up call to me and the struggle is real for so many!

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.

Very enjoyable listen

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, along with Amanda’s narration. The story didn’t give any real explanation for Romoney’s addiction, which is a shame because that should have been a main focus of the story. However it dealt well with the effects it had on her life and that of her family. A bit long winded towards the end but otherwise I would recommend this book

Heartbreaking story

The audiobook is really heartbreaking to listen to in parts. I wanted to dive in and shake Romily at times and beg her to try harder. Just shows the power of alcohol to listen to the choices she made. Wonderful book and so well narrated.
