Lucy was born to a single mother who had been abused and neglected for most of her own childhood. Right from the beginning Lucy’s mother couldn’t cope, but it wasn’t until Lucy reached eight years old that she was finally taken into permanent foster care. By the time Lucy is brought to live with Cathy she is eleven years old and severely distressed after being moved from one foster home to another. Withdrawn, refusing to eat and three years behind in her schooling, it is thought that the damage Lucy has suffered is irreversible. But Cathy and her two children bond with Lucy quickly, and break through to Lucy in a way no-one else has been able to, finally showing her the loving home she never believed existed.

Cathy and Lucy believe they were always destined to be mother and daughter – it just took them a little while to find each other.

Great Read

5

Great reference for Foster parents and adoptive parents. It's a little slow in the middle and rambles just a bit but picks up again.

Once I started reading, found it hard to put the book down. Really enjoyed "Will you Love Me" and it has certainly made me appreciate my family even more and how lucky I have been in life.

A much awaited tale

5

This is yet another Cathy Glass tale of family tragedy but one with a very happy ending. Like all Glass' tales, it is one that should make us all aware of child abuse in all its forms.
