Publisher's Summary

When foster carer Cathy Glass is asked to foster Darcy-May, a two-day-old baby, she is very concerned.

The baby is coming to her straight from the hospital and will have no contact with her teenage mother, Haylea. Even more worrying, she will be brought to Cathy with a police escort, as it’s vital her extended family doesn't know where she is.

Abandoned at birth, Cathy and her family quickly bond with little Darcy-May, although they have to accept that she will eventually leave them to be adopted. But fostering is rarely straightforward, and when Haylea asks to see her baby, a different story begins to emerge. It’s so alarming that even Cathy, a highly experienced foster carer, struggles.

I was both shocked and saddened

Incredibly well written book about the true story of an abused 14 year old and the ensuing issues set in motion after she gave birth to a baby girl.
I am not an ignorant person but when you hear the dreadful things that happen to some children it’s absolutely mind boggling. A must read (or listen)

Absolute tear jerker!

Difficult to comprehend some people’s behaviour towards any child, never mind their own. So very sad.

love Cathy Glass









Alot of, and to much "filler". Alot of not so interesting pieces that dragged on and I felt like were there to fill the pages. Wasn't interested in her daughter's day at home, what she did at her son's house, wedding wedding, wedding. I had to fast forward some parts which is unusual for me when listening to Cathy Glass books.And the repeating of the same routines followed each day....feed bath sleep phone call went to other room etc. just to much filler.

Another book nicely done!

I have been reading/listening after getting hooked to Author Cathy Glass. So happy with this new release. Nicely done. I enjoy the realistic stories that she tells of the children. One never knows of torment some of these children’s relatives out though and she makes it known to us with her books. They are all nicely done with their needs and feeling coming first and what they encounter. Way to go Cathy on this one! Thank you for all that you do!

She has also told us positives and negative outcome also involving her family along the way that you feel part of the journey with them. very well written and narrated. god bless you and your family xxx

A triumph of love over evil

I have read every book in this series and I was not disappointed with this one. The combination of writing and naration, make such an impact. Anyone like me, with a far from happy childhood, can't help but wish Cathy had been in our lives. If there is proof that just one person being kind can impact on someone's life, this is it. Thank you Cathy, for what you do, and for sharing your life with all of us. I look forward to your next book.
