Book Description

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.

More About the Author

I live in England and have three children, two birth children and one adopted. When I left school I held a clerical position in the civil service, which I left to start a family. At the same time I became a foster carer, which is the inspiration for much of my writing. I have been a foster carer for over twenty-five years and am what's known as a specialist foster carer, sometimes referred to as a level 3 carer. This is in recognition of my experience and qualifications and means that I am often asked to look after children with complex needs or very challenging behaviour. I have a degree in education and psychology which I was awarded as a mature student.

I have always been a writer - from when I was at school, with poems in the school magazine. In my teens I began writing short stories, articles, a few radio plays, and entering writing competitions. Like many writers it was a hobby - something I did almost furtively in my spare time, while working, and then later fostering and looking after my family. The two halves of my life - writer and foster carer - came together in 2007 when I wrote about a child I'd fostered and the book immediately became a number one best seller. Since then there have been many bestsellers, thanks to you. I really appreciate all your support and best wishes. Cathy xxx

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Cathy's best books to date. 28 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've now read all of Cathy Glass's books and also enjoy similar authors such as Casey Watson and Rosie Lewis. I'd been eagerly awaiting this new release and I wasn't disappointed. The story goes back to when Cathy's children, Adrian and Paula were much younger and a seven year old girl, Beth comes to stay after her father suffers a nervous breakdown. Cathy's starts to notice that there is something not quite right about Beth's relationship with her father and gradually all becomes clear. Cathy has mentioned in her previous books her divorce from her husband and this covers the period when Cathy's marriage to her husband John broke down, something that I found as interesting as the story with Beth. Well done Cathy Glass and what a tough cookie you are! I can't wait for her next release and have it on pre order.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very difficult subject 5 April 2014
By Chris from Hampshire TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read all the Cathy Glass books telling the various stories of the children whom she fosters and of Lucy, the foster child that she adopted. Every book is a page turner and this one is no exception.

Beth, the subject of the book, is a child that Cathy fostered in her earlier years of fostering children , before a lot of the systems that are now in place with Social Services. This child is placed in foster care because her only parent, her father, is in hospital. Beth's mother had left when she was just a toddler and she is being brought up by her father.

From day 1, it is obvious that Beth is extremely close to her father, but in a very short space of time, Cathy feels that there is something not quite right about the father/daughter relationship. This child is quite possessive of her father and the photos of her with her father that she has bought with her to Cathy's house, are not the usual family photos what one would expect to see of a young child. The clothes that Beth wears when not at school are also not age appropriate and she insists on picking an outfit every time she has telephone contact with her dad.

The story tells of Cathy's unease about this father/daughter relationship, of her conversations with Beth's school teacher and with Jessie the Social Worker assigned to Beth. As the story goes on, it is clear that Cathy's intuition is correct and that all is not well. When she reports her feelings to Jessie, she is made to feel stupid, but she is vindicated.

To tell you how the story of Beth goes on would be to spoil your read of this well written book. It does deal with a very difficult subject in respect of child abuse and one that is very difficult to prove. It also touches on a personal shock for Cathy and her children Paula and Adrian.

As with the other Cathy Glass memoirs I can absolutely recommend this one - it is brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars As always, Cathy Glass books are a good read 3 April 2014
By Sheila Camp VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read all of Cathy's books and although some people may feel they're all the same, I think it's nice to get an insight into foster carers/social workers.

In this book we meet Beth whose stay with Cathy is because her father has had a nervous breakdown, but things are not what they seem and it comes to light that Beth and her father have an 'emotional incest' relationship (II'd not come across this before).

Because this story goes back to when Cathy's children were younger, we also find out why Cathy was divorced from her husband. Although the divorce is mentioned in other books, this time we find out the reason why.

A not put-down-able read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another lovely warm hug from Cathy 31 Mar. 2014
By Sizzle
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I only discovered Cathy Glass books when up doing night feeds with my third child and on the look out for something heart warming to read. I have now read them all in a matter of months and I am so fond of Cathy and her family I worry a bit. This latest book plugs in to our desire to know what got Cathy where she is today. Poor Beth is a fascinating character and I vet jars grown to a feisty young lady. Thanks for another fantastic book Cathy. I loved it. But Christ your ex husband is a c0©k

Cathy rocks.

Ps - 2 year old Paula is my favourite
