If I wasn't reading for book club and the book wasn't so short, I would have DNF'ed. I couldn't really tell most of the characters apart and the pov didn't allow me to connect to their emotional drive at all.

This is a good novel on the topic of surviving domestic abuse and dealing with alcoholism. It's realistic, and deals with heavy subjects, but the main character has survived to worst of things, and is building a future for herself and her family as best she can, with some success.
