by Cathy Glass
Another emotional and open-hearted story from Cathy Glass, who has been foster mother to over 150 children. ‘The Silent Cry’ travels back in time, to when Cathy’s own children were young, and she was taking a short break from fostering while she finished her degree. Cathy still volunteers to help three children with short term respite care, however the main story focuses on a neighbour who needs help. Cathy writes under a pseudonym, she writes with clarity and love, her tales are simply told but so very readable. With four tales in one, honest, often shocking, yet at times quite beautiful, this is a fascinating insight into Cathy’s world.
It is the first time Laura has been out since the birth of her baby when Cathy sees her in the school playground. A joyful occasion but Cathy has the feeling something is wrong. By the time she discovers what it is, it is too late. This is the true story of Laura whose life touches Cathy's in a way she could never have foreseen. It is also the true stories of little Darrel, Samson and Hayley who she fosters when their parents need help. Some stories can have a happy ending and others cannot, but as a foster carer Cathy can only do her best.
