4.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't put it down!, 14 Aug 2006
This review is from: Wednesday's Child (Paperback)
Working as a child care worker myself, I was delighted to hear that a piece of work had been written about the actual experiences of one who had worked in the field for fifteen years. I began reading Wednesday's Child one evening and finally put it down at 2am that morning. The content was without doubt, harrowing, but Shane's treatment of it was sensitive without being sentimental. His voice remained clear and honest throughout and led the reader into unimaginable places with a gentle, yet unyielding description of the horror that was the life of the children in his care. I thought the character development was superb. I found myself really caring about the fate of these children and hoping that there would be a happy ending. All in all, I think Wednesday's child is not only a fine piece of writing, but an essential read, not only for those of us who work in the area, but all who want an honest description of an area seldom discussed so openly.
