Her books are so sad. Shes a foster carer and her books are about some of the children she has fostered. Their storys are utterly heartbreaking

Yes I had to stop reading them! I am the mum of a (now grown up) child who was abused....and they gave me sleepless nights. I have loads of them and I think I will give them to a charity shop...or if someone wants them?

I have read quite a few. I am a foster carer and they are very accurate, and from my experience generally with happier outcomes than the norm. I am no fan of victim lit in general, but I think Cathy's books are well worth a read

Yes I love her books

Accurate and to the point, but they make great reading

Could you recommend some for me?

Well, all of them really! I think the first one i read was 'cut'. The latest is desperately sad - all about a little boy she fosters who dad dies of cancer sad. I would suggest just reading the lot!

Thanks its just im aware some contain sexual abuse cases and im not upto reading it for personal reasons so was wondering which were ok and which were not

Oh sorry - teach me to not read the thread properly! Cut is ok as far as I can recall, and definitely the last one: 'The day the angels came'.

They are wonderful. I don't normally like this genre but they are very well written.

hi ,I`m new to mumsnet ,and my own mum passed on the Cathy Glass book..Run mummy Run to me..
Having not read in years ,and having been in an abusive relationship ,I did enjoy her story ,and could also identify with the female character ,who is totally "taken over" and controlled by her husbandsad
Anyone can recommend another ,not a child abuse story ,as I know I`d not be able to cope with it ,but I liked her style of writing very much ,and wondered if anyone had another good tale to suggest?Thanks!

Love Cathy Glass books! Have them all. If you like Cathy Glass, another great author is Casey Watson, she's also a foster carer!
