Publisher's Summary

Ruth was a ghost of a girl when she arrived into foster mother Maggie Hartley's care. Pale, frail, and withdrawn, it was clear to Maggie that Ruth had seen and experienced things that no 11-year-old should have to, that she's been conditioned to "see no evil, speak no evil". Ruth is in desperate need of help, but can Maggie get through to her and unlock the harrowing secret she carries?

Through love, reassurance, and patience, Maggie starts to unravel Ruth's painful past - a past defined by cruelty and abuse by the very people who should have protected her. Raised by a cruel stepmother and her father after her own mum abandoned her, Ruth was abused, underfed, and ignored, while her half-siblings lived a life of luxury.

It's up to Maggie to help Ruth find her voice; to be a ghost no more, and bring those who've harmed her to justice.

Adopting? Fostering? A must listen

This does a wonderful job explaining how child abuse and neglect affects a child. From removal to care to court case to permanency. Beautifully written and raw.
