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.

Brave little girl

I love what Cathy Glass do for children. Beth is a little girl that is not treated like a little girl. Things in her life is not right. When Cathy takes her in Cathy does not like what Beth and her father relationship is...... that is all I'm going to tell you. Cathy Glass is a great memoirs author. Denica Fairman reads the book well. 5 out of 5

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.

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.

Another Great Read

Lots of sadness, joy and poignancy interwoven into yet another great read by Cathy Glass and brought to real life by narrator, Denica Fairman. i just love listening to these books and I love the day to day accounts, the inclusion of Cathy's family and parents. I felt great sadness when reading about how Cathy's marriage suddwnly broke up without warning and how hard that must have been while fostering and how hard for little Adrian and Paula.
Thank you for sharing these wonderful true stories.

well done Cathy.

well done to Cathy Adrian Paula and if course to Beth and Derek. a touching story from so many different angles but I'm glad it all ended the way it did. but I'm afraid to say I was not very pleased with John. that was aweful. I love listening to Cathy glass books and will be listening to many more many many times. thank you.

Non stop listening

As with all Cathy Glass books she doesn't disappoint with this book & I was surprised that wasn't as emotional as some of her books infact it was interesting how foster parents were treated in the past but the whole book I couldn't stop listening to started it 11:15am and completely forgot about anything else today and just listened constantly till I finally finished listening to the book until 21:35pm. The only thing I have to say that didn't give the book credits was the narrator as she made the kids sound sickly spoilt kids every character sounds like the same person very bad at acting out different voices but if ignore that it's another first class book by Cathy who is such an amazing inspirational person who I look forward to reading or listening to her books and is one of my female heroes that I look up to in today's society
