Publisher's Summary

Little Jamey, two and a half years old, is placed with experienced foster carer, Cathy Glass, as an emergency.

The police and social services had no choice after a neighbour reported Jamey had been left alone all night while his mother went out partying. Scared, hungry and withdrawn, Jamey has spent so much time in his cot that his leg muscles haven’t developed, and he can barely walk. He is craving affection, and Cathy and her family find him very easy to love. However, as Jamey begins to settle in and make progress a new threat emerges. Coronavirus and lockdown change everything.

I usually enjoy these books

I usually enjoy these books but this one was far too politically opinionated for my taste.

This is a touching story about fostering, but there's too much talk about COVID-19.

Did not enjoy

The narrator was absolutely dreadful. Will not be listening to any more Cathy glass books. Also far too much about corona virus.

Great story.

A fantastic book as always by this author, it was interesting to read how Cathy and her family coped with fostering in the pandemic. Jamie was a wonderful child and got the outcome that he deserved. A sad story of neglect that Jamie had to suffer but thankfully Cathy was able to help him which is a huge relief.

Another lovely book

Cathy Glass is a Foster carer with common sense and she is a very remarkable lady
The narrator Denica Fairman has a lovely voice and I am so glad that all Cathy's books are read by her.

amazing book again !!

another amazing book about Cathy's Foster children. Once I started to read this I just kept going as I wanted to find out what happens to the child. The narrator reads the book with such detail with her voice that allows your mind to really picture what is being said.Cathy Glass is such an amazing lady and loves all the chdren she fosters. all her books are recommended as a must read.

Awful

If you want a book about covid, this is the book for you. If you want an original cathy glass, book than don't bother. What a load of waffle.

A lot about COVID!

So I’ve read all of Cathy’s books and loved them all! sadly here in New Zealand we have COVID everywhere at present, for the first time. It feels very stressful indeed. Reading is often an escape, but I have had to have brakes from reading , too much COVID!! And today my 14 year old tested positive! Wish me luck 🍀
