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

Format: Paperback
This is one of the most moving but beautiful books that I have ever read. It tells of the true story of a fathers unconditional love for his son and the very emotional journey they make into Cathy's life and family.
It was personally very uplifting to read of a parents unconditional love for their child instead of the usual neglect and abuse inflicted on children prior to coming into the Care System.
I am a huge fan of Cathy's and read and loved all her books but i think this is by far her best book and highly recommend it!

Have just finished reading the night the Angels came it arrived at 3pm this afternoon and I had read it by 6pm, Could not put it down it was so moving and had me in tears, but in the way that you had met some one who had faith and how inspirational and thought provoking it was, I laughed and cried at the same time.Would recommend this book most highly, Cathy has surpassed even her high standards.

I have read several Cathy Glass books but this was the first to move me to tears. Actual heart breaking sobs in fact! Cathy's books show what a fantastic and sometimes testing job foster carers and their families do. I take my hat off to Cathy and her children who sound just as lovely as they should with her as a mother! Fantastic writer.

An absolute brilliant read. I have read a lot of books but this one is by far the best. I would reccommend this book to everyone. It is easy reading but heart felt. I love the way the author Cathy describes situations and i feel so involved whilst reading the book i have to remind myself that im not. I feel after reading all of Cathy Glass books that i know her a bit and understand her life a bit more. This book is moving, it shows how religion can help you over come death. It moved me to tears. I couldnt put this book down. All of the authors book are extremely well written. I cant wait for her next book to be published, Hurry up Cathy xxxx

I loved this book - the first time that I read it last year when I was ill in hospital, and I still do - the second time just as much - it means a lot to me - in two ways as it was the first book that I had been able to read in two years, after the tragic death of my niece three years before - before she died I was a well known book worm, perhaps it was the shock of her death that had caused me to loose my ability to read, its only these last few months almost a year after reading Michaels story- most of the books that I have read since have been Cathys. Michael,s story is the closest to my heart as my own Father whom had brought up my elder siblings and I -as our mother had severe mental health problems -my dad like Patrick - Michaels dad was a mother figure as well as a father - My father also died of Cancer - when I was 10 years old - my sibling's had all left home by time I was 10 and a half years old i was in my role as a child carer. I loved my mum. But that life as hard as a child. As I wasn't as fortunite as Michael. However his story will forever be a part of my heart - God bless you Cathy!

Read this book in 3 hours - couldn't put it down! Another very emotional but heartwarming book from Cathy. Nice change to have the book about the unconditional love a father feels for his son, rather than the injustice of a child being mistreated, although I LOVE the other books! Keep them coming! :)

This book is yet another great story of the hard work that Kathy is doing in helping others,it was such a great read very sad but had a happy outcome as with all her books once you start reading them you cant put them down,she is truly a remarkable woman caring for others aswell as her own children as you will find out when you read her books,this book in paticular really touched my heart the courage that she gave Patrick the dad aswell as Michael the little boy, even thou it was a tough time for them all including Cathy and her family she did all that she could to make thier final days together happy ones.
Keep up the good work Cathy,cant wait for the next book.
