One More Chance (IRE) | Horse Profile | Sky Sports Horse Racing
The storyline can be summarized with nine words: But Basha is being suffocated in the relationship and calls it off, needing time to be alone. Separated, they have to find their own legs in a world without one another. The storyline is straight forward for a movie of this genre. There is nothing new to be seen here really.
And as such, then the movie doesn't really impress. However, I am sure that you will eat the storyline right up if you are a woman. I will say that Bea Alonzo did a good job with her role, as did John Lloyd Cruz, but you sit there and get really annoyed with his character, especially as he is so self-centered, narrow-minded and turns into a spiteful stalker of sorts. It is not the actor's fault, it is simply the character in the story that was a sissy joke. This movie did have some good points and moments here and there, but ultimately, it was a struggle to get through the nearly two hours the movie dragged on for.
This is a sappy love story for a woman audience. Guys and gents, you might want to find something else to put on. Definitely not one of Philippines cinema finest moments.

It was a fascinating insight into the world of female prisoners and felt remarkably gritty and genuine. The author, Lucy Ayrton, is Communications Manager of a prison charity and much of this story was inspired by women she met and talked with on visits, particularly within the Holloway Mother And Baby Unit.
This really comes across in the narrative, you can feel the characters bouncing off the pages with their authenticity. These people feel very real and believable and although they may have issues, it's impossible not to feel some sort of sympathy for the situation they find themselves in. Our female lead, Dani in particular is wonderfully interesting and I really enjoyed getting to know her. She drove me absolutely crazy with the decisions she made sometimes but in the end, I just felt a great deal of pity for her, especially the inner turmoil she experienced in being apart from her daughter.
Dani often felt she needed to put on a front, especially in a system that promotes violence and the importance of never showing your fear but I could sense her vulnerability and appreciated the emotional roller-coaster that rocked her childhood and adolescence life. One More Chance is a page turning and at times, eye-opening read about the world of female incarceration from an exciting new voice in fiction that really understands what she's writing about.
I'm looking forward to seeing what Lucy Ayrton does next! For my full review and many more, please visit my blog at http: Jun 25, Susan Angela Wallace rated it it was amazing. One more chance by Lucy Ayrton.
Danielle Grove is in prison. Her baby girl Bethany is in foster care. She gets a new cell mate Martha. Can dani get OUT and get her baby back? Can she get out and not go back inside like she's done in the past? I loved the story and the characters. She was a meani. I liked Dani and Martha. Surprised how quickly I read this.

It is not that they aren't good stories, but they are just not the type of story that I would pick up. That said, however, there was something about this book that drew me in. When reading the description, for me it read like this was going to be the story of Dani breaking out of prison to get to her daughter.
Realistically, for me this was not the best part of this story. The best part was actually learning more Now, I am not normally one to pick up books about prison, drugs and rehabilitation. The best part was actually learning more about Dani, her background and watching her character grow as the story goes along. We start off the story by seeing her as a repeat offender, someone who is always going to end up back in prison. As the story goes on, she changes and really wanting to rather than being forced into change.

It's a very interesting story in the way that you wonder if Dani's cellmate mate Martha has some sort of witchy second sight power or if she is the queen of manipulation and playing on a weak mind to achieve her aims.

Her family thought her no good so she went down a route based on her own self worth. What she wants more than anything is to get herself sorted out so she has a chance of getting out and seeing her daughter again.

Martha seems timid but reveals something a lot more chilling. Like I said it seems more like Martha is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Nov 15, Kathryn rated it liked it. And here, that voice belongs to a young mother in Holloway prison. I struggled initially with Dani as the main protagonist, feeling frustrated by her attitude and constant truculence, while finding myself distracted by other characters, in particular queen bee Chris and the altogether more mysterious Martha.
And by the end of the book, I grudgingly admired her and even felt ever so slightly hopeful for the future. There are some more mystical elements to the story which I chose to go along with partly because I figured Dani sees them as something to pass the time but which also feed on her personal circumstances and desperation to see her little girl.
Where Lucy Ayrton very nearly lost me was in the scene at a park where a key absence goes unexplained, and I did tire of people staring at each other and how loaded with meaning each of those stares were.

Prison life is by its very nature going to be repetitive but I think Lucy Ayrton otherwise does a pretty good job of counteracting that here. This book works for me because Lucy Ayrton persuaded me to give Dani that all-important One More Chance by hearing her out and listening to her story. Why not do the same? Oct 22, Kath rated it it was amazing. Wow, this book definitely kept me sane during a long coach journey stuck in traffic!
I was able to block out the world and immerse myself wholly in Dani's story. We first meet her when she is in prison. As we get to know more about her we see flash backs to her childhood, to see the events from the past that shaped her present day incarceration. Back in the present, we see her meet her new cell mate, Martha, and how, together they plan how Dani can get out, keep clean and stay out and, hopefully, Wow, this book definitely kept me sane during a long coach journey stuck in traffic!
Back in the present, we see her meet her new cell mate, Martha, and how, together they plan how Dani can get out, keep clean and stay out and, hopefully, get her daughter back. Each chapter of this book begins with a fact about women's prisons, or women offenders.
These facts complement the part of the story they are inserted into and add some rich colour and food for thought as the rest of Dani's life is told. It's evident from these that the author has definitely done her research and, when coupled with the stories of what went on in prison for Dani, definitely opened my eyes about certain things. The characters were all pretty well crafted and their behaviour and interactions felt real. Dani was a bit brash and a fan of colourful language but all her actions and dialogue were congruent with her character so that didn't faze me at all. Martha was very interesting and, I guess, will be the marmite character in the book based on what she is and does.

Me, I found her intriguing and with there was a Martha in my life! The story itself was powerful emotional for me. I really felt for Dani at times, others I just wanted to slap her silly and urge her do something else, take a different path, but then life's not that easy, especially when I have never been in any of her situations personally. Who am I to judge? There but for the grace and all that. It was gritty and brutally honest which gave it a claustrophobic feel at times. As I always do when I find a new author to me, I tried to check out her back catalogue and was completely amazed that this is actually her debut novel.
It was so very well written I would never have guessed that at all. All in all a good solid read that grabbed me from the off and held me hostage throughout. I really can't wait to see what the author serves me up for my next course. My thanks go to the Publisher and Netgalley for the chance to read this book.
