When foster carer, Cathy Glass, is asked to foster Darcy-May, a two-day old baby, she is very concerned.
The baby is coming to her straight from hospital and will have no contact with her teenage mother, Haylea. Even more worrying, she will be brought to Cathy with a police escort as it’s vital her extended family don’t know where she is.
Abandoned at birth, Cathy and her family quickly bond with little Darcy-May although they have to accept she will eventually leave them to be adopted. But fostering is rarely straight forward, and when Haylea asks to see her baby a different story begins to emerge. It’s so alarming that even Cathy, a highly experienced foster carer, struggles.
This was another fantastic book written by Cathy. I have to say this one was broke my heart. I mean all of these books do, it shows the highs and lows Cathy has to deal with on a daily basis. Cathy is so professional and brilliant at what she does, she gives every child such a loving and stable home. This story is about Darcy May and her mother Haylea. Darcy May comes in to Cathy’s care but her mother doesn’t want anything to do with her, But she wants to stay with Cathy. When Cathy finds out why she doesn’t want anything to do with her baby, it shocked me to the core. I felt sick. I felt better they were both being looked after by Cathy but for how long? I think this story really hit home and I think it will stay with me for a long time. I look forward to the next book.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
