After reading this, go check out FAMILY COURT HELL by Mark Harris. That is a real life account of Britain's worst ever access case; 133 hearings before 33 judges, two terms of prison for waving to his kids, all sorted out when the kids ran away to their Dad, it's about as bad as it gets.
I also felt that I learnt a lot about the CSA and how it deals with absent parents.
I would love Ann to write a follow up - say what has happened in the five years since the end of this book.
I am so impressed that I will be ordering some more of her books!
Well done Ann and keep up the good work.
