Nothing Good can Come from This is a series of essays that surprised me as really quite good. Revolving about the author's difficulty with drinking and quitting, it brings a poignant and entertaining series of stories. The book is well written, enjoyable and yet brings out a lot of emotions for the reader. I laughed out loud in parts and felt distressed by some of the situations of the author.
The author tells us of her transition from social drinking to alcoholism to quitting drinking to distance running to cope. I felt the panic of her writing in those first days and weeks of being sober, and admired her staying with the plan. This is the life that many of us have known, either by self realization or by a friend or close relative. Alcoholism doesn't discriminate and might just be the mom next door.
Four stars for this book. I enjoyed it and the essay format was conducive to our traveling.
My thanks to #NetGalley and the publisher for an advance copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
Our current home in Alva, Florida. We are at a Corps of Engineering Campground that is beautifully maintained. Sitting in a spot that we can see a beautiful sunset each evening with the dogs makes life pretty sweet. Thus far, we have seen tarpon (it's a fish), egrets, and an alligator. Enjoying this spot for the tranquility and beauty.
