Here's what I wrote in 2013 about this read: "An anatomy of a woman (high-functioning) alcholic. The woman friend written about in Let's Take the Long Way Home. Got a bit long and discouraging but has a fine reputation as really, really helpful to many readers. Glad to have read it." Quotations in the comments section are my exact kindle highlights.

Caroline used alcohol to hide from her demons but when she finally gave it up and faced her demons head on, she displayed amazing amount of bravery in revealing not only to herself, but to her readers as well, all the many many mistakes she made while under it's spell.
