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.
