The Woman in Cabin 10 was a huge disappointment after reading Ruth Waring's previous novel In the Dark Dark Wood. The main character was hard to sympathize or relate to with her constantly being drunk. abrasive and traumatized. There were many times in the first half I was going to stop reading but continued on with all the good reviews and her previous book. The second half of the book Lo miraculously becomes sober, somber and articulate but can't save the book or the storyline.
