Product Description

Product Description

A dramatic debut short story from London-based foster carer Mia Marconi.

An incredible chain of events that began in Italy during WWII with an illegitimate pregnancy shaped Mia’s destiny. The illegitimate child was her father, a lost soul who she idolised. Protecting him instilled in her an instinct to care for the vulnerable and, after a chance meeting with a chaotic foster family, she decided fostering was her vocation.

In an incredible twist of fate, the first baby she fostered was born to an unmarried Italian girl. Then came Hope, so badly damaged by her teenage mother’s alcoholism she was in hospital for a year. Finally discharged and settled in Mia’s happy home, what happened next would make Mia question if she could carry on.

What I love about this book is the honesty and the raw emotion. Nothing is hidden or sugar coated, even if that's.uncomfortable at times. The author is really brave and talks about her own failings as well as her successes. She is very human and caring and gives her all. The book moved me to tears, which I think is quite rare. Can't wait to read the next in the series
