Comments

I also just read the book and that's what I thought but this description doesn't really say it could cause her to act like that. By the way loved the book!! The Address
Does anyone know if continued, extended use of this product (vinegar bitters) would cause disorientation, confusion? I'm reading a fiction book that seems to indicate so. Can't find answer online.
I was wondering the same thing! I'm reading The Address by Fiona Davis. Currently on Ch. 16 & trying to get the scoop on this Dr. Walker's Vinegar Bitters stuff!
Reading the same book. It had 5% alcohol so maybe she was really drunk.
