Publisher's Summary

Tilly hates her stepfather, Dave. He abuses her mother, but she refuses to leave him. Frightened for her own safety, Tilly asks to go into foster care and is placed with Cathy. 

Tilly arrives with a graze on her cheek, and Cathy becomes increasingly concerned by Dave’s behaviour, especially when she learns he has been showering Tilly with gifts. 

While she’s busy looking after Tilly and trying to keep her safe, Cathy is also worried about her own daughter, Lucy. She has a very difficult decision to make that will affect the rest of her life, and Cathy hopes she makes the right choice.

Who produced this?!

Great story but someone completely failed to edit the audio properly. I’m halfway through and I’ve heard three instances where multiple takes of the same audio appeared in a row. I’m a profession voice artist and producer myself and I simply cannot fathom how this happened. It’s as if someone did their first pass through and never finished it. Remarkably shoddy.

Another wonderful read!

I absolutely love all of Cathy's books and this narrator is great! I have just finished this in 1 day and I'm eager to hear more about Lucy and baby as well as this new 10yr old boy with behavioral problems. Looking forward to it's release.

Another wonderful book from Cathy Glass

I loved this story. Lots of sad twists toward the end. I have read now all the books from Cathy Glass and I was never a reader before this. I only had read about 3 books in my lifetime before I got hooked on her books. It’s the way she tells the stories. I may have to go back and reread them. Lots of sleepless nights as the book keeps you turning the pages. Thank you for all the love she shows to all these children. Great book!

Excellent! I can't wait for her next book

By far one of my favorites. I'm so pleased Tilly's story is going to continue
