Publisher's Summary

The latest title from the internationally bestselling author and foster carer Cathy Glass.

Beth is a sweet-natured child who appears to have been well looked after. But it isn't long before Cathy begins to have concerns that the relationship between Beth and her father is not as it should be.

Little Beth, aged 7, has been brought up by her father Derek after her mother left when she was a toddler. When Derek is suddenly admitted to hospital with psychiatric problems, Beth is taken into care and arrives at Cathy's. Beth and her father clearly love each other very much and Derek spoils his daughter, treating her like a princess, but there is something bothering Cathy, something she can't quite put her finger on.

Meanwhile Cathy's husband is working away a lot and coming home less at weekends. Then, suddenly, everything changes. Events take a dramatic turn for both Beth and Cathy and her family; as Cathy strives to pick up the pieces all their lives are changed forever.

Particularly addicting.

This is a story about a foster child who suffered a more subtle but very damaging kind of abuse. As with all of Cathy's books, she has a way of creating a warm feeling especially in regard to healing, family life, forgiveness and domestic life. I enjoy hearing about how her children relate to one another, how she deals with difficult situations and I honestly feel a real kinship with her on many different levels. This book goes more into her personal life than the others and I found this very comforting as I've experienced similar things.

hard to put down books written by Cathy Glass

what a outstanding book really like how it ended for Beth and how all her dreams came true, and how her daddy didn't give up and did what he had to do to get back his little girl!

Great Book!

I've listened to three of Cathy's books so far, and plan to keep listening to all of her books. I usually listen during my commute to and from work, but I find myself listening while I'm at home or whenever I can.

An interesting read

This was another excellent book by Cathy Glass. I've read of situations like the one Beth lived with but never knew what it was called. Thankfully everone was able to get the help they needed. Again the story is written with warmth and compassion. Another great read.

yuck

I don't believe this story is real, or any of her books. it angers me because it's a slap in the face to anyone working their butts off caring for Foster kids and the REAL struggle these parents and kids go through. people get frustrated. people get hurt. kids are not resilient. there are bad people and most Foster kids don't get a happy ending! this is BS. A fairy tale to misguide potential Foster parents and false comfort for parents who have lost their children to the system- which is particularly corrupt in the UK.
