5.0 out of 5 stars another thought provoking book................, 10 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Cut: The true story of an abandoned, abused little girl who was desperate to be part of a family (Hardcover)
the third book by Cathy Glass is as moving as the last two volumes. Cathy writes well without being over the top as so many of the "misery memoirs" can be. Cathy paints a picture of her very ordinary family (and I mean that as a compliment, not an insult) trying their best to give Dawn the best life they can. It is to be hoped that the social services do a better job now than they did 25 years ago. Without wishing to spoil the story for others their deliberate withholding of the facts about Dawn's upbringing could have been extremely damaging to the Glass family. The only thing that didn't ring true in fact was Cathys ( and also her husbands) reaction to those revelations........... I would have made an official complaint at least but I suppose that it would have stopped them fostering any more children.

It is also very interesting to learn about Cathys own life - maybe the next book will reveal more about her childrens early life.

as a foster carer i know and fully understand where Cathy is coming from and some of the choices she has to make on a daily basis, trust me looking after the kids is the easy part the difficult part is dealing with the politics of social work and trying to understand some of the decisions they make and the complacency they show about them

I am sure you are right Margaret - being a social worker must be an extremely tricky job; I'm certain I couldn't do it.....
