About this deal

Every time a Cathy Glass book comes out I know I need to set aside some time because I cannot put these books down once I start. Despite mentioning that she does not / would not judge families, there were references to her "being right" about quite sensitive topics. a lot of people complained about the covid references- personally i didn’t mind them and i found that they were relevant to the setting. Sometimes you need to look through her matter of fact sentences to find emotional meaning and inferences, e.

I just felt that I needed to say that as a reminder and I would have liked for that to have been mentioned by Cathy to her readers in the epilogue along with the acknowledgment that false allegations occur. in reading about English criminals one comes across many who have been raised in and out of a foster care system which in practice comes across as virtually identical to the CDSS. I don't like to perpetuate the idea that false reports occur, because the system makes it difficult enough for children and women to be believed as it is.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Cathy tries to comfort the girls, but they want their mummy and daddy, and are inconsolable for days. The drama is a focus point towards the end and I wanted more time with the girls as they neared the end of their stay with Cathy - the story moved towards the adults.

They decided not to sue the police or social services as they were going to as they recognized they were only doing their jobs. 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.This was the story of two little girls who’s elder sister had made allegations against their father (the older sister’s stepfather) ending in them being removed to Cathy’s care. It was the first time reading one of Cathy's, and I found her writing style to be somewhat simple, which in turn made it difficult to follow.

this book broke me especially as the young children were finding virtual contact difficult and not seeing their parents in person . The epilogue seemed to warn parents, teachers, caregivers, and foster parents that a false allegation may be made against them. When foster carer, Cathy Glass, is asked to foster Darcy-May, a two-day old baby, she is very concerned. Ashleigh is now living in a children’s residential home where she will be prepared for semi-independent living when she comes out of care at eighteen.That is absolutely horrifying and the mother in this book did not deserve to get her youngest children back after abandoning her oldest. Cathy is very diplomatic in the way that she discusses and interacts with the families of the children she looks after, a characteristic which shines brightly throughout this particular story. She could have been prosecuted for wasting police time because of the lies she told, but she received a warning instead and accepts she did wrong.

The first title, Damaged, was number 1 in the Sunday Times bestsellers charts in hardback and paperback. To access your ebook(s) after purchasing, you can download the free Glose app or read instantly on your browser by logging into Glose.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.
