Ignore the first review, this book is as enthralling as all Rosie's others. Unputdownable. It is harrowing and you will shed tears but when a story is as true to life as this one is then a price has to be paid. Highly recommended.

Excellent book set in more modern day times. Tells the story of a little girl who is adopted and then due to her mothers death ends up being shipped around a bit, staying with her aunt and uncle first where she was very poorly treated. A couple of foster homes later and she ends up in a circus where Gina takes her under her wing. A bad experience during a walk one night ends up with Bex leaving the circus for the next stage in her life. After working in a cafe and then getting raped again she turns her life round. A very good read.

I was interested to read about a plain girl, instead of the usual pretty ones you find in many stories. It certainly highlighted the failure of the care system. At times it was very sad indeed, but it began to brighten up halfway through as the heroine begins to learn to fend for herself more. There are elements I found a bit far fetched, but they combine to make a very good read.

You just couldn't believe the traumas one child had to endure.
Yet unfortunately it goes on all the time and its an awful fact.
If she could have just found love a bit earlier life could have been so less cruel. Thankfully it did come to her in time to let her start a full life. An excellent read.

As a regular reader the story is predictable in places but the reader is taken on a entertaining route to get there and on occasions the outcome surprises. I found this book up to the high standards one expects from a Rosie Goodwin novel and again I am a happy reader.

One of the best books I have ever read. Moving and terribly sad in places. If I had endured the life Rebecca had endured I would be very bitter to. Could not stop reading this had to find out what happened. Buy this you will not be disappointed.

I enjoyed this book although wouldn't rate it as great literature, rather a reasonable read that didn't require much thinking about. The themes were rather somber and a little depressing - don't read this if you need cheering up!
