Won on Goodreads giveaway. Thanks very much for that.
& I always appreciate a little extra touch on a giveaway. Like Ms Wright enclosing a matching card.
& the layout & presentation of this book is quite beautiful.
J A wright was born in the States & that is where this novel is set. Is part of this harrowing tale autobiographical? (Wright's brief bio at the back says she has been in recovery for 30 years) I don't know, but Randall's sad life is powerfully told. With an alcoholic father & ineffectual mother, Randall's self loathing takes her down a horrible & destructive path, until help arrives from a most unexpected source.
In the middle I found it hard to keep going, but two thirds of the way through I couldn't put this book down. Highly recommended....Continua
