5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book 11 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback
Oddly enough, I came to read this book because of a love of Agatha Christie's works and in particular her play "The Mousetrap." I read the play back in the 1970's, then had the opportunity to take my children to see the play in London in 2001, and just saw it again for it's 60th anniversary at the Walnut Street Theater in Philadelphia, PA. On the Walnut Street Theater's website I came across a write up on how the play was based on a true story about three young boys who had been placed in foster care. Doing a little on line research I found that recently one of these three boys had released a book on his life.

That book entitled "Someone to Love Us" written by Terence O'Neill, Tom O'Neill's younger brother. I was so intrigued that I purchased that book not really knowing what to expect. I was amazed at how brutally honest and skillfully it was written when the subject matter had to be so painful to put into words. Looking over reviews on line after I had read it I came across a brief reference to "A Place Called Hope" written by Tom O'Neil. I tried to get a copy here in the State's but was unable to; so I was thrilled to find a copy on Amazon.co.uk. Again I was amazed at how insightful this book is into the plight of children who find themselves in deplorable living situations through no fault of their own.

My own Mother was put into foster care at the age of 9 during the Great Depression, she was the youngest of 5. Only three lived to adulthood, my Mom and two of her brothers. One brother committed suicide in 1970 and the other died of a massive heart attack at the age of 46!
