Tilly hates her stepfather, Dave. He abuses her mother, but she refuses to leave him.
Frightened for her own safety, Tilly asks to go into foster care and is placed with Cathy. Tilly arrives with a graze on her cheek and Cathy becomes increasingly concerned by Dave’s behaviour, especially when she learns he has been showering Tilly with gifts.
While she’s busy looking after Tilly and trying to keep her safe, Cathy is also worried about her own daughter, Lucy. She has a very difficult decision to make that will affect the rest of her life, and Cathy hopes she makes the right choice.
As soon as I get a book by Cathy Glass, I just have to read it straight away, this is the story of Tilly. Cathy Glass is a foster carer and has been for a very long time. I feel as though she is not only an author but a wonderful and very caring lady, with two kids of her own and her adopted daughter, she still manages to find the time to care for other kids, which is an incredible thing to do. I like the way that any child that comes into Cathy’s home is treated like family, she has so much love to give. With Cathy’s books I always say to myself just one more chapter then I end up reading lots more chapters. Her books are addictive, I also wanted to see where we left of with Lucy who is Cathy’s adopted daughter, there is always a lot going on but Cathy manages to do it all single handedly. I feel as though reading these books gives me more of an education into the foster care world which I previously did not know anything about. I look forward to the next book where Tilly’s story continues.
