Publisher's Summary

A heartbreaking true story of a broken family and the foster carer who wants to keep them together....

The Watsons are no strangers to sibling placements, but when Casey takes the call from her supervising social worker one frosty January morning, she can instantly tell from the tone of her colleague’s voice that there’s a complicated case ahead.

And she’s right. A four-day-old baby boy called Tommy - born in prison - plus his four-year-old half-brother, the lively Seth. A month later, the very moment she gets out of prison, the boys’ mother - a 19-year-old called Jenna - also follows.

For Casey, it would it be a difficult scenario on several levels. Caring for a newborn in her 50s with a pre-schooler who has spent most of his young life without boundaries tearing around her ankles, while also looking out for his drug-addicted mum who is ill-equipped to parent.

It’s an unusual situation, but one that has arisen in a bid to keep the family together. Can Casey find the energy and strength needed to rise to the challenge? Casey believes she can, but when baby Tommy and Seth arrive, she falters. Seth is not so much a pocket rocket as a seek and destroy missile with a whole other agenda....

Couldn’t get past the first half an hour

I love love love this author. I’ve read most of her books in print but don’t have so much time to read now so I thought I’d give an audio of her book a try. I just couldn’t get on with the narrator, perhaps because I already had my own idea of what Casey would sound like. I found the reading a little….over exaggerated? The accents weren’t my cup of tea really. Ended up returning it and buying another Diane chamberlain read by Susan Bennett who both really are excellent.

Another amazing story from a fantastic writer.

Again another fantastic read from this author. I love how Casey regularly goes beyond what is required in order to help the children in her care. Her willingness to also help the mother to even though that was not stricktly her job apart from monitoring her. The watsons are very caring and always try and do what is best for the children in her care.
