'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?'

'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
