My Review

I have been a huge fan of  the author Paul Read after reading The Art Teacher.

Paul Read has a way with words throughout this novel.

A must read of family secrets, addiction and a quest for understanding.

Paul Read almost abandoned this novel following a family bereavement, continuing with the novel felt disrespectful to Paul in some way.
