Product Description

Product 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.

About the Author

Cathy has been a foster carer for over 25 years, during which time she has looked after more than 100 children, of all ages and backgrounds. She has three teenage children of her own; one of whom was adopted after a long-term foster placement. The name Cathy Glass is a pseudonym.

Cathy has written 16 books, including bestselling memoirs Damaged, Cut, Will You Love Me?.

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
By ruby
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 Mrs C 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 Another brilliant book 31 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Each time Cathy Glass releases a new book I always have a small fear that I wont love and connect to it like I have the others. This was luckily not the case with Daddy's Little Princess.

I sympathized with Beth from the very beginning of this book, and much like Cathy I had a suspicion something was not quite right between Beth and her father, Derek.

Cathy's writing style kept me from putting the book down. "I'll just finish this chapter and then go to bed" is one of the phrases I thought alot throughout this book (as with all her others). As it happens, I found myself finishing the book within 2 evenings, and consequencly very tired at work the next day!

Cathy also touched upon the previously mentioned topic of her husband. Cathy had mentioned in her previous books that John had been unfaithful, and her children, Adrian and Paula were having weekend visits with him. But she goes into more detail in this book, taking us through what actually happened and how deeply it affected her and her young children. Cathy's mum summed up all our feelings quite perfectly: He's a bastard!

Well done Cathy on another excellent book. I will now be eagerly awaiting the next!
