Another amazing read from Cathy Glass, a foster carer who gives everything to reach out to the children she foster's. This little girl who was in care due to family issue's going way back. As she starts to trust Cathy her past is exposed. Excellent read, could not put the book down. If you like true life stories then this book should be on your list.

This was a gripping story - i couldnt put it down. Cathy Glass is a foster mother to Dawn - but what a jpourney they go through. To be honest i dont know how she contunued for so long in that situation - a very loving family. I found mysel getting more and more annoyed with "ruth" the social worker and to be honest if she read the book she should be embaressed as to the way she behaved!How can you put a child in someones care and not explain her background BUT anyway thats for later discussion. Dawn is a very disturbed child, she sleepwalks, she cuts herself and noone tells Cathy and John why. This is not a graphic read by any means but it is upsetting to know a child can do this to themselves.

Her style of writing reminds me abit of torey hayden. REally sad but good read. 9/10 for me

I discovered Cathy's books a few weeks ago and I am now on my 5th book, I find they are excellent well written books and give readers an insight into the world some children live in, whilst that is uncomfortable reading at times it is a real eye opener and I finish the books with such admiration for 'Cathy' and for foster carers in general to take on a child who has such huge problems and help them turn their lives around can only be commended and do not see how bringing these tragedies to the publics attention can be seen as exploiting the children, after all aren't a lot of books linked to the author's experiences or experiences of someone they have encountered? Nothing but praise for these excellent books which I will continue to buy and recommend

I am a big fan of Cathy Glass's work and books.
This story is sad but inspiring as the rest of Cathy's books! Its about a girl named Dawn who cuts herself. I always find Cathys books to have the right balance, its so easy to go on about how sad things are but she always balences out that with her help. It always makes me feel inspired as Cathy is a down to earth women with an ordinary life who goes beyond just giving children a place to live while their permanent home gets sorted out
I couldn't put this book down once i started it.
Another good book from Cathy Glass

Please rate my review as helpful :)

This is my second Cathy Glass book, another enthralling read which sucks you in from the start. The subject matter is disturbing, made all the more so by the fact its it is based on her true life experience of fostering a difficult and awkward young foster child. You are once again drawn into the story wanting to know why the girl behaves as she does, when she is so clearly being offered such stable support in her foster home. I won't ruin the end, but is is all made clear and will give you genuine insight into how childhood abuse can damage a person inside and out. Very thought provoking - Another one well worth a read.

Another fantastic book by Cathy Glass, she has truly a wonderful talent in writing stories based on what she knows and it works. This was another book that I just couldn't put down and even made me cry, it's so emotional and definitely not one for the feint hearted. Her literacy style makes it so easy to read one chapter and be drawn into it so much that you just have to continue reading. Absolutely amazing one of my favourite authors of all time, I highly recommend all of her books. So if you are undecided on whether to buy this book or not, I suggest you do; you won't be disappointed!

This book like the others in the series is well written and a great story,

About the life of a young girl who has a hidden traumatic secret she has been carrying around with her since a very young age, and blocked it out , a mother who could not look after her as she did not know how to handle her daughters disruptive behavour.

Then she came to live with Cathy and with lots of hard work and lots of love.

I will not give any more away all i will say it is like all the others Cathy has written is worth reading
