A powerful page-turner, Before I Let You Go explores the dilemma: What do you do when your sister, an addict, tells you she's pregnant and needs your help? The question at the heart of the novel will have EVERYONE talking, and it is already attracting massive buzz from booksellers. Kelly Rimmer has sold over 600,000 digital copies of her previous novels The Secret Daughter, Me Without You, When I Lost You and A Mother's Confession. Before I Let You Go is Kelly's first novel with Hachette Australia and the first time she'll be published in print in ANZ.
As well as an incredibly gripping and moving novel, Before I Let You raises awareness of the issues around addiction, and in particular of what happens to mothers and children when the symptom of an illness – substance abuse – is deemed a criminal offence. In research for the book, Kelly interviewed a large number of contacts and organisations from Australia and the US in the medical and social services spheres as well as those who have dealt with personal experiences around the issue of addiction. Kelly is extremely passionate about discussing the devastating consequences of the social stigmatization of people with addiction, and is committed to highlighting that both those struggling with addiction, as well as those around them, all have important personal stories to tell.
