I'm not sure what to say about this one. It took a lot out of me, reading it. And it's not like I can say I was drawn in by the story line...really it's just another memoir of an alcoholic getting sober and finding God. I've read those before with much more enticing stories and such. Still...the way the story is written pulls me in and there's just enough mystery that kept me going. The style of writing was unlike any other I've read before and while it took a bit to get used to ultimately I enjoyed it. I'd read the author's other books. Her '95 memoir, "The Liars Club" especially.
