Thank you for giving me the opportunity to attend your amazing book launch on Sunday. You are a truly amazing and inspiring Lady and Author.I had read your first book, and started reading the sequel last night , it was such compelling reading I have just finished it after work this evening.You have really helped me understand more about ADHD and mental illness with your honesty about what you and your boys have been through.I also enjoyed your quotes from the bible and your “Letter to my Child”.I will keep you and your boys in my prayers Carolyn, and hopefully we may get to catch up.Stay strong, my thoughts are with you,Love from Libby G

I just finished your book. I have not read a book continuously in years. It usually takes me ages, stopping and starting. But, with your book, I could not put it down! Luckily I am on a short holiday so was able to finish it before I head home tomorrow. Every word I read, as if you were sitting in front of me telling me your story. I felt every emotion, and every tear you shed. Carolyn, what amazing mother, wife and woman you are!! I am so proud to be your friend, and so honoured that you came to my 60th. Much love and many hugs sent your way. Xxxx Jenny RM

 I finished reading your book yesterday. It was a compelling read from start to finish, thought provoking and exhausting, capturing some great successes but moreover capturing, the sheer determination and tenacity of your journey fighting for your boys. Well done, Carolyn. I was waiting to read one of your famous FB posts when one of the triplets said to another (identical) triplet: “Jeez, you’re f…ing ugly”, not to mention the “golden” Labrador story. There is so much material, no doubt, and you’ve done a great job putting it together. Helen K

What an amazing book! I couldn’t put it down. I read your first book and was so touched by your courage and determination, this sequel is inspirational and really informative about ADHD. Thank you for sharing your journey with such honesty and humour. I alternated reading it with laughter and tears. ❤Fiona D

Wow.. I’m ordering and looking forward to reading your books. I have 3 kids, all diagnosed with ADHD.. My identical twin boys (14) sound a lot like your boys. My daughter (15) is also an ADHDer.. Not many people understand how I can have 3 kids that all have ADHD and assume and judge my parenting etc. Congrats on the book and surviving the teenage years!! Belinda M

Hi Carolyn, I just finished reading the first book and have ordered the 2nd book. Holy cow!! I had no idea what you had to go through, even though I knew you had it tough. . You have so much patience, love and good humour!! Well written and I’m looking forward to the next chapter. Gulp!! . Oh and of course a gem of a mother and husband. Kate S

Your casual relaxed writing style makes reading your book feel like a conversation over your kitchen table with a cuppa. Your story is an incredible one albeit confronting. The way you tell it as it was and is, sharing every good, bad and ugly moment with such honesty will help others to do the same. You are amazing. The book is amazing. Helen D

Thanks so much Carolyn for my book. I read it in a night! Love, love, loved it. After all that you and the boys have been through you still come out with a such a positive attitude. You are a shining example of the power of taking action and never giving in. Congratulations on another well written book! Maryanne B

Your book was amazing and it is beyond me how you and Martin have survived.Please know Helen and I enjoyed the book launch last Sunday.  It was so interesting and also fun.  Thank you for the afternoon tea and a cuppa which gave everyone the opportunity to have a chat.Your book was very interesting and thought provoking and I wish you success with selling the book and all you strive to do towards mental health.  Most have no idea of the problems involved in obtaining help.  All the best for the future for your family.Love from your Knitting Club friend Ann
