One Step Closer to You,  Alice Peterson, book reviewI love Alice Peterson’s books – what more can I say? I have never yet been disappointed by any of her books and each time I read the next one I can’t believe that it will exceed my enjoyment of the last – but it always does. Which is why I am heartily declaring One Step Closer to You as my favourite read of the year so far.

One Step Closer to You tells the story of Polly Stephens, a recovering alcoholic, and her young son, Louis. She has managed to put her troubled childhood and an abusive relationship behind her and is now a good mother to her son and also enjoys her job working in a local bakery. She still needs the support of her sponsor and her weekly AA meetings though and at one of these meetings she is surprised to see a fellow parent, Ben, from the school that Louis attends.

By My Side, Alice Peterson, book reviewI think that to have to draw up a list of my top ten favourite books would be a virtually impossible task. However, if pushed to do so, after having read Alice Peterson’s latest book, By My Side, it would definitely find a place on that list. I can’t remember the last time that I was so moved by a book and unashamedly sobbed all the way through. By My Side has almost certainly elevated Alice Peterson to the position of favourite Author.

By My Side tells the story of Cass Brooks and what happens when she is tragically hit by a car and wakes up with a spinal cord injury. Unable to walk, she thinks her life is over; she loses her boyfriend, her job and her life as she knows it.
