Publisher's Summary

The true story of Melody, aged eight, the last of five siblings to be taken from her drug dependent single mother and brought into care.

When Cathy is told about Melody's terrible childhood, she is sure she's heard it all before. But it isn't long before she feels there is more going on than she or the social services are aware of. Although Melody is angry at having to leave her mother, as many children coming into care are, she also worries about her obsessively - far more than is usual. Amanda, Melody’s mother, is also angry and takes it out on Cathy at contact, which again is something Cathy has experienced before. Yet there is a lost and vulnerable look about Amanda, and Cathy starts to see why Melody worries about her and feels she needs looking after.

When Amanda misses contact, it is assumed she has forgotten, but nothing could have been further from the truth....

Always love Cathy's books!

Loved it! Good reading and a good book. Always a good read by Cathy. She gives us an insight into fostering and all that can and does go wrong in young lives.

A bit uneventful<br />

I have read MANY of C.Glass books but this one was pretty straight forward with not many bumps. I did cry a couple times but there wasn't much else going on. It's just real life going on for noone's entertainment. lol

Amazing as always!!

I could not stop listening. Another truly amazing read. Cathy does such amazing work, and the children she fosters are so lucky to have her. Hope she has another book to release soon.

Bad Narration

Cathy Glass is obviously well regarded and I admire her work and writing, what an amazing woman....but listening to this on audible was like listening to the narration of a Peppa Pig episode, there was no warmth to it at all and I felt like it was explaining the story to a child. I had to stop listening as it was really irritating. Such a shame. Sorry

Foster Care

A fascinating view of adoption and fostering. Test jerking at times but sharing the wonderful work undertaken by these people. Will certainly read more of these books.

So good!

I absolutely love Cathy glass books, even better in audio, I feel like I am actually there watching the whole story in real life.......I also like that you have updates on your web page of where your foster children are at now, because after reading the books I always wonder where they are at now and if they are doing well in life.
