Once inseparable, years of resentment and jealousy have driven Alice and Holly apart. But, though they barely speak these days, Alice knows her sister is hiding something.

When she hears that a discovery at a soon-to-be-demolished apartment building has led police to re-open an ‘accidental death’ case, Alice thinks nothing of it. She’s distracted by a recent chance encounter with a charismatic man named Damien, and the possibility of romance when she had given up all hope. Until someone knocks at her door, with questions about Holly.

Alice doesn’t believe her sister is capable of involvement in anything so sinister. But when she tries to contact Holly, she can’t be reached…

Forced to dig through the past in order to uncover the truth, Alice starts to uncover years of Holly’s secrets – and to doubt her innocence. As the evidence mounts up, Alice has a choice to make: does she want to help her sister clear her name, even if the price is her own future with Damien?

Firstly a big thank you to the publishers for my copy to review on netgalley. This is a new author for me which never loses its excitement.

Packed with twists and turns this is a great read. Family secrets and sibling rivalry pave the way for these sisters.

Can they move on whilst their past lingers?

Unpredictable and kept me hooked.

I could relate to Alice who is a single mum with a not too kind ex. I could also relate to Holly who’s made many mistakes and is living in a controlled relationship, though she doesnt realise.

Can they bury their differences to work together?

There he is, my baby boy. His eyes are closed, his tiny rosebud mouth is pursed in sleep. My eyes well up as I catch a whiff of his newborn skin and I swallow back a wave of emotion. I should feel happy, I should feel grateful, but all I can think about is everything I just lost…

It’s a miracle when Katherine’s baby boy is born healthy. But his twin sister doesn’t survive, and when Katherine is told she can’t have any more children the loss is almost too much for her to bear.

Katherine always saw herself having a big family: she remembers how the loneliness of being an only child used to overwhelm her, and she is desperate to adopt a sibling for her son.

But her husband Davis won’t agree. He worries that Katherine will struggle when the new baby arrives. What if growing their family only adds to the grief she feels over losing her little girl? What if this breaks their marriage apart?

And Katherine is forced to make a choice. Give up the second child she has always dreamed of or risk losing the family she already has?

Bryony Gordon is a respected journalist, a number-one bestselling author and an award-winning mental health campaigner. She is also an alcoholic.

In Glorious Rock Bottom Bryony opens up about a toxic twenty-year relationship with alcohol and drugs and explains exactly why hitting rock bottom – for her, a traumatic event and the abrupt realisation that she was putting herself in danger, time and again – saved her life. Known for her trademark honesty, Bryony re-lives the darkest and most terrifying moments of her addiction, never shying away from the fact that alcoholism robs you of your ability to focus on your family, your work, your health, your children, yourself. And then, a chink of light as the hard work begins – rehab; twelve-step meetings; endless, tedious, painful self-reflection – a rollercoaster ride through self-acceptance, friendship, love and hope, to a joy and pride in staying sober that her younger self could never have imagined.

Shining a light on the deep connection between addiction and mental health issues, Glorious Rock Bottom is in turn, shocking, brutal, dark, funny, hopeful and uplifting. It is a sobriety memoir like no other.

I absolutely adore this woman; have loved all her other books and even had the pleasure of meeting her at one of her walks. She is a inspiration. I knew this was being published ,it was on my radar but for some reason i wasnt purchasing. Well it would appear i had been in some denial myself.

So this week is a new chapter for me and this was the first book i ordered . Not as a guide but almost like a hug in a book from someone who gets it. There were parts in there i could have written. There were feelings and events that were very similar to my own.

This is a beautiful yet ugly emotive memoir about Bryonys truth about alcohol. Its not a self help book it doesnt claim to know all the answers . But my goodness how refreshing is it when you are in a daek place to connect with someone who was there.

Books have and alaays will be my lifeline whatever my mood or current situation.

Fantastically written and a complete inspiration.

Thank you for sharing your truth and making others truth that little less shameful.
