5.0 out of 5 stars A Story of Heartache with A Destiny Fulfilled, 12 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Will You Love Me?: The story of my adopted daughter Lucy (Kindle Edition)
Lucy is the daughter of Bonnie and Vince who is of Thai extraction. Vince leaves Bonnie who spirals downwards into rough living taking Lucy with her. After a succession of Step-dads, uncles and aunts, the abused Lucy is passed pillar to post by a well-meaning social services department. Lucy is left damaged, mentally and physically. She has no stability in her life, is distrustful and has an eating disorder. Her only friend is Sammy, an observant schoolboy, who sees the predicament Lucy is in and tells the teacher, Mrs Bridges about his concerns to little avail.

Enter Cathy Glass. Her social worker Julie asks Cathy to take Lucy in. Her response is as usual 'yes'. Lucy understandably is reticent about her new surroundings and wonders where she will be sent next. Cathy and her children Adrian and Paula are pillars of understanding and help. Gradually, Lucy, not without difficulty, realises love and genuine affection surround her. She feels part of a family. What happens next is up to the authorities and a bureaucratic tug-of-war to reach the common-sense and obvious solution to Lucy's long-term care.

Cathy Glass has written another winner. There are differences from recent books in that the fringe elements concerning care and depth intelligence are more emphasised, not surprising in view of recent media events. At the centre of all this is the carer, Cathy, who remains passionate about the children in her charge. Heart-rending and written by an expert; engaging, 'unputdownable' and excellent.

Thank you for this feedback. I've read all Cathy's books, and can't wait to start with this one, which appears ro be as touching as all the other one.
