About this book
When the character Paula Spencer first appeared in Doyle's earlier novel "The Woman Who Walked Into Doors", she was a thirty-nine year-old alcoholic widow struggling to hold her family together. This sequel to that book, which sold over 400,000 copies in paperback, begins on the eve of Paula's forty-eighth birthday. She hasn't drunk for over four months, and her youngest children are still with her, but she worries about her daughter Leanne. A brave, tenacious and very funny novel. 'A magnificent achievement' "The Guardian"
