5.0 out of 5 starsA mother’s worst nightmare
Reviewed in the United States on October 25, 2020
This is a simple, straightforward story of a tragedy no mother should have to endure. It’s as though the author is sitting in your kitchen or living room sharing her experience and grief with you. I read it in less than half a day. My heart goes out to the author.
This is truly a heartbreaking story. If I'm truly honest I have to say it's not the most well written book I've ever read, but it is one of the most heart wrenching. It too a lot of courage for Cathy to put all those emotions on paper and share them with the world. As a mother, I can't imagine her pain. My heart hurts for her and her family. I know the pain will never end, but I pray that with time Cathy will be able to once again find meaning and enjoyment in life.
How can a mother survive the death of two daughters? I think the one sister never got over her sister's death. This is heart wrenching and so sad, yet we must all carry on for the ones around us we still love. What a bold book for the author to write.

I have just finished this book and have nearly gone through a box of tissues. My heart breaks for Cathy. To loose one child is absolutely devastating as i know as i lost my 14 year old son. There are no words to describe the loss of two of your children. I am going through issues with my surviving daughter trying to take her life as she finds it so hard with the loss of her brother. I would not be able to cope if i lost my daughter too.
My heart feels like it's going to break now I've read this. I remember it like yesterday when Cathy came into the online bingo room asking if anyone had seen her Kirsty. Then the devastation of finding out her pink princess had been murdered. No mother should ever have to bury her child ket alone 2 beautiful daughters. My heart goes out to both Cathy and Dave who never deserved any of this. They are the strongest parents I have ever met. Your girls will be looking down on you Cathy and are with you always in your heart xx
I have been a friend of Cathy' s and her daughter Sonya on social media for a number of year's now and I remember so clearly the night that Kirsty was missing the pain and heartbreak the family went through was indescribable I urge anybody to read to this book, the pain and heartache is felt on every page. To loose one daughter to murder is something no parent should have to go through, but to then loose another is beyond heart breaking I haven't ever read a book where I've cried so many tears that I couldn't see the words to read them. This is a story that nobody should have write and yet Cathy has to tell it because forever her family is broken.
We've never had the opportunity to meet, I hope one day we do
Cathy I send so much love to you and if by telling your story you help save a beautiful young girl from the horrors that your kirsty went through then I for one would say that a mother's love is more powerful than ever it needed to be Kirsty and Hayley you'll never ever be forgotten shine bright gorgeous girls

A very tearful true account of a mothers heart wrenching time throughout the loss of her beautiful pink princess. Tears will be she'd whilst you read, though the strength of her mum shines through this horrific ordeal and a!loss you to walk in her footsteps and catch a tiny glimpse of what she been through. I wish her love, peace and comfort.

Poor mother Cathy. Got this book on kindle then my friend gave me the paperback to read. Realised it was the same book as i like true stories crime. Poor mum how devastating after all her efforts of being a loving mother and providing the best for her children. Having lost a close family member myself in tragic circumstances i can only say. Come on Mum focuss now on the living and enjoy your family ie: grandchildren/eldest daughter. Remember the good memories. Time to relax and start enjoying the rest of your life. You are AMAZING 😊
