The blurb from the back of the book:
Little Jamey, 2½ years old, is placed with experienced foster carer, Cathy Glass, as an emergency.
The police and social services have no choice but to remove two-year-old Jamey from home after his mother leaves him alone all night to go out partying.
When he first arrives with foster carer Cathy Glass, he is scared, hungry and withdrawn, craving the affection he has been denied for so long. He is small for his age and unsteady on his feet – a result of being left for long periods in his cot.
Cathy and her family find Jamey very easy to love, but as he settles in and makes progress, a new threat emerges. Coronavirus and lockdown change everything.
As always, Cathy made me cry.
I fell in love with Jamey from the very beginning. My heart bled for him as I learned of his neglect.
It was heartwarming to see him change and develop so much with Cathy and her family. It certainly puts into perspective the role of a foster carer, and how very vital they are.
There was a lot to do with the coronavirus in this book, and while I appreciate it was important to the story, it was a little bit too much for me, otherwise this is another exceptional book from this author.
I gave it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
