I found the book dragged a bit at times but there were several laugh out loud moments that made up for it. I preferred Rachel's Holiday but still consider this a very good book.
I love the author's writing style.

Listen to this book. It was an emotional roller coaster, I laughed out loud, I cried, I got mad, but most of all I loved the story.<br/>I love learning about all the Walsh girls.

What a book! I can honestly say I have not enjoyed a book this much since I can't remember when. The book opens up with Anna Walsh, who is the main character of this book, recovering from some kind of episode, for want of a better word (I won't spoil this for you by telling you what kind of episode), in Ireland with her family. It is both sad and hilarious at the same time and every emotion you have ever felt comes spilling out with her in everything she does from work to play, from despair to acceptance from Ireland to New York. If you want a really good book that you will recommend to all your book-loving friends then this is the one for you. It has had me laughing until I thought my sides would split and tears of laughter were carousing down my face as well as crying soon after with tears of sadness spilling down my face. Just an amazing book and I loved every word, sentence and paragraph and couldn't wait to hear more and now I am really sad that I have finished reading it.

I was not at all sure I would like this book. It is not my sort of book really, but I thought I would try it as I didn't want to get stuck in a rut.
Without going into any of the story- the other reviewers have done that well enough- I would just say that this is an absorbing book that never quite went where I expected. If Chick Lit is not your thing give it a go anyway- it draws you down to the deepest of human emotions and yet is not indulgent.

I've read all her books and I love her narrator aswell . The stories with 12 step references are extremely accurate and much loved ... when I read or listen to Marian I feel like I'm having a convo with a dear best friend . Thanks Marian Im so grateful for the fashion and style with which you write.
