The novel is a gritty, but realistic story of a woman who finds herself in desperate straits. Within the storyline, the author’s story tackles alcoholism head-on, and presents the reader with an empathetic account of a spiraling addiction and the resulting pattern of hopelessness that many fall into. ‘Alice’ addresses the seriousness of addiction and shows us the importance of love and support for an addict with astounding accuracy.

The Nottinghamshire author, who writes under the pen name K.L Loveley has been a nurse for the NHS for 40+ years and has used her medical knowledge within the book.

With respect to why she chose to tackle alcoholism within her debut novel she states, “My work has involved aspects of Public Health and social issue and I was reading through a medical journal one day and I realised that female drinking habits were really changing.”

“I wanted to give a story that reflected this so I wrote ‘Alice’ because I felt it reflected the struggles of many women who’ve found themselves in circumstances beyond their control – women who in their twenties saw themselves with a long and happy future ahead of them, husband two-point-five children nice home good career etc, but the reality for some women is these aspirations and dreams are shattered when the family unit is broke up as a result of divorce and they may follow a different path like a sliding doors situation”

Alice is available to purchase from Amazon, Waterstones and all leading bookstores.
