Haunting, haunted, devastating ... a necessary book for all who have been lost and broken by addiction. * Fergal Keane *

Clare Campbell's unpretentious memoir has a special power ... a story about sibling
love and loyalty ... a disturbingly human story about the endurance and impotence of love.

* The Times Literary Supplement *
