Book Description

20 Feb 2014

After the death of his best friend, Shane Dunphy runs away from his life working at a special needs crèche, and attempts to avoid his child protection instincts. However, when a part time journalism job in rural Ireland leads him to a family in desperate need of intervention, and a young girl crying out for protection, Shane cannot stand idly by and watch...Little Emma Blaney lives with her three siblings in an ancient farmhouse, with a life that is like something from another time - no running water, no electricity, and no contact with the outside world. Whilst covering a land dispute between Emma's father Tom and his powerful brother Gerry, Shane discovers that there is a lot more wrong with the family than just a feud. The children are filthy, nervous and and undernourished.

In order to protect Emma and her siblings, Shane finds himself at loggerheads with the church, local government, big business, property developers and industrial farmers. But Shane must discover the truth about the Girl from Yesterday, before it is too late, even if it will cost him his new life...

I am always sad when I have finished one of shanes books because although I can't wait to get to the end to see why happens. I just want to read another one of his books. I have read all of his books and I'm just hoping he has many more for me to read.

This is an unusual but lovely story with a satisfactory conclusion. I would recommend it to anybody concerned with the welfare of children generally, and those in potentially dangerous situations in particular.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Girl from Yesterday 18 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Written by a person who works in the social work section and is relating experiences encountered during the performance of his duties. The child in question was a case study.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lovely ending 1 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Primarily about grief, this book covers lots of different story lines. It is a book about child protection but from an referrers prospective instead of a social worker or child's prospective.
