Product Description

Product Description

The second in a series of true short stories from foster carer Mia Marconi.

India was a child who was destined to end up in care. She came to foster carer Mia Marconi’s house when she was three; she’d already been in care for five months by then. But her mum Amy didn’t get on with her carer and threatened to kill her so India was moved.

But no matter how inadequate parents are, children in care love them and want the world to love them too.

Amy had had a hard life: she was one of seven siblings, all of who had been abused and ended up in care. She was an alcoholic and she phoned all times of day and night threatening suicide.

When India finally settled in Mia’s happy household, Mia embarked on amazing journey to help Amy too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dramatic read 10 July 2014

This is such a dramatic book I couldn't put it down and read it in one sitting. I loved the unpredictable characters and really felt for the poor little girl stuck in the middle. How Mia and her family survived I will never know. I've just seen that there is a third. Book to come and will definitely read it

I gave this 5 stars as I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Would have loved it to have lasted longer though.. If you like Cathy Glass, Casey Watson you will like this book.

Mia is such an inspirational foster carer. Our family has known her for 5 years and she is such a supportive lady. She has a dedication to fostering that merits an award. Once I started this booked I could not put it down. I am looking forward to reading all of her books. The book was very honest and Mia always does what's right for the children.
