Book Details:

Book Title:  Weekend Pass by Paul Cavanagh
Category:  Adult Fiction (18 yrs +),  210 pages
Genre: Literary
Publisher:  Not That London Writer
Release date:   Jan 19, 2021
Content Rating:  PG-13 + M. Includes some f-words, religious profanities, and mature themes (addiction, adultery)


Weekend Pass packs a lot into fewer than two hundred pages. The dialogue never stutters. The writing is tight and clean and elegant with hidden depths that give pause for reflection and thought. It covers important, difficult themes in a compassionate, humanist way. It was an absolute pleasure to read.

Book Description:

Who can forgive a mother who poisons her eight-year-old son? Even if it was an accident. Tasha thought she had everything under control – her family life, her career as a nurse – until her son got into her stash of painkillers. Now, during her first weekend home from drug treatment, she must come to grips with the damage she’s done and somehow pick up the pieces. Told from the points of view of four different family members, Weekend Pass is a story about the lies we tell ourselves and the people we love. And it’s about struggling to rise above the mistakes that threaten to define us.

Thoughts
This book deals with a very serious subject, substance abuse. Tasha is a mom and nurse, and she has an addition to painkillers. One day her young son finds her painkillers and he ends up in the hospital. The book takes place during a Tasha’s first “weekend pass” from a treatment facility.

The book describes how substance abuse can affect a family. The drugs can harm everyone in the family, not just the person with the addiction. It goes into the problems Tasha’s mom and dad had in their marriage, and  Tasha and her husband Baker’s problems. Baker is very angry at Tasha, with very good reason.

The book covers is an emotional read that will keep you turning the pages, wanting to find out how things unfold.

I have never read a book by Paul Cavanagh before but will check other books out.
