Publisher's Summary

Ashley is a young single mum raising her daughter, Eden, and working hard to do the very best job she can - until one night she can't find a babysitter and makes the decision to leave Eden home alone for a couple of hours, asleep inside a wardrobe. It is an action that begins a terrible downward spiral for both of them.

When Eden arrives at experienced foster carer Louise Allen's home, she has entered the care system because her mother is in prison. Eden is five years old and will not speak to any human. She begins exhibiting some other disturbing behaviours alongside the mutism, too, including torturing the family pets she loves. This eventually leads Louise to discover the pain and tragic reality behind Eden's Story.

book three Eden

this is the 3rd book in the series I have read they are all fantastic and I love Louise's attitude and sometimes scathing depiction of social services workers and the entourage. my one and only slight criticism would be the accents especially when it's the young mothers . I also love the words used that I haven't heard before and pause to find out it's meaning I love words I am going to download the last one in the series to. start tomorrow. thank you for wonderful writing and narration of the most part

A little slow

I found this book interesting at first but as it went on I found it difficult to keep interested. It’s a lovely story about Eden but there was a lot of babble in between, sometimes it was relevant sometimes it wasn’t.
