About this deal

The baby is coming to her straight from hospital and will have no contact with her teenage mother, Haylea. I also worked closely with the police on abuse cases and understand why social workers cannot share all the information discovered during the assessment process.

They appear to have been well looked after and the family has never come to the attention of the social services before. I have been a foster carer for over twenty-five years and am what's known as a specialist foster carer, sometimes referred to as a level 3 carer. The whole book made me angry and it was clear from the beginning she had made her mind up then went sweet with him at the end.When foster carer, Cathy Glass, is asked to foster Darcy-May, a two-day old baby, she is very concerned.

Large references to Covid/restrictions which in parts took over the story of the sisters etc however it didn't ruin the story for me. And the book’s description of the “ripple effect” of a child’s removal from his own home, however bad, shows it to be enormous, however good the foster home. Angie, 6, and sister Polly, 4, are utterly distraught when they arrive to stay with foster carer Cathy Glass. I hope that readers can accept this saddening story for what it is and acknowledge that when false allegations are made it can be devastating to the family. In my opinion, they should have questioned the teenager and her boyfriend way more in depth early on and months of separation for the other two kids could have been avoided.However, as the girls settle and start to talk of life at home, it becomes clear that Ashleigh didn’t enjoy the same close relationship with her stepfather. Cathy has been a foster carer for over 25 years, during which time she has looked after more than 100 children, of all ages and backgrounds. Her next three titles, Hidden, Cut and The Saddest Girl in the World, were similarly successful, all reaching the bestseller charts. Yes, I appreciate some people are new to her books but most are not and we don't need to read it in every book.
