    1. Having read a few of Cathy Glass books some years ago, I looked forward to reading this based on several favourable reviews from other readers The story draws attention to the important and often thankless job of foster care workers as is the case with her other stories however I felt the title and synopsis was quite misleading as the young girl in question, Kim, is only ever a minor character in the overall story In the last half of the book, she is barely mentioned at all This memoir is perhap [...]


    2. I received a copy of this book in a giveaway.Foster mom memoir writer Cathy Glass has written her latest, The Silent Cry, and it s a true story of offering help, of reuniting family, and unconditional love In this book it isn t just the children who need help, but also their unstable mom, and all it takes is the support of one person to make a big difference for the family However, there are many obstacles to overcome, and deep seeded problems that need to be dealt with The Silent Cry is a genui [...]


    3. This book deserves a 3.5 I think I love Cathy Glass s books and her tales of being a foster parent This book was a little different as it had to do with her neighbor s mental health issues and wasn t centered around a child she was fostering Because I am such a fan, I thought it was interesting to see some other aspects of Cathy s life and how her family functions when there s no foster child with them However, I think first time readers of hers would find the book slow Besides her neighbor, thi [...]


    4. This is quite a different work by Glass It touches on fostering for sure, but at the same time, it also look at topics such as mental health, family relationship, new parenthood etc For those that looking for a good hard Glass s fostering memoir might be disappointed, but it is also one of her lite work, talking about her early days when both of her children are still fairly young Although by saying that, it doesn t mean there is no usual emotions involve, just not as much and intense A good 3.7 [...]


    5. This book was good and I couldn t put it down Probably due to the true story element I liked how it mixed the fostering stories and the mental health story, but feel like it could of focused on the later, as that was what was implied in the blurb Though it was interesting to get an insight into foster care I would be interested in reading of her books.


    6. was a good book and interesting to hear of the routine day to day routines of a foster carer and the things that crop up rather than the details of fostering one particular child but didn t find myself eager to read .


    7. Cathy Glass has been a foster carer for than twenty years, and through her books she shares these experiences, and the experiences of the children in her care.This is mainly the story of Laura, a mother who is suffering from postpartum psychosis, and not the story of a child Cathy is fostering However, it is also partly the story of Samson, a boy Cathy takes in for respite a few times, and of Shelley, a young mother doing her best Though different from Cathy s other books, especially in that it [...]


    8. Decent read The book seems to be directed towards readers who are interested in psychology, education, or parenting It could be helpful to someone who s interested in becoming a foster carer Sometimes it felt like we re getting too many details the author would explain why she did something or why something is the way that it is or she d add extra seemingly unnecessary details about an event , which might make it a bit boring for some people I did appreciate those additions, though, as it made t [...]


    9. 3.5I always enjoy reading Cathy Glass books, and although this one was different to her others, and not as enjoyable, it was still a nice read.This book, rather than just focussing mainly on a foster child, it also featured a friend who was suffering from postnatal psychosis which I had not heard of before , I only wish it would have focused on Laura and her mental health, as having the chance to read his kind of thing could also help other mother s potentially suffering from the same condition [...]


    10. This is the second Cathy Glass book I have read and the stories were captivating and touched on some subjects that definitely need awareness PND , however I found the writing style a little boring Samson was a true little character and brought the book to life, he made me chuckle after feeling down about Laura s story.


    11. I was lucky enough to win this book through a Goodread s giveaway and really enjoyed it I particularly liked the writing style which made it easy to read and yet it also covered a range of issues including postnatal psychosis, which I had never heard of before This is the first book I have read by Cathy Glass and I ll definatly be reading .


    12. I won a copy of this book from Giveaways First, Foster Carers are my heroes Second, while the theme of this book is an important subject and foster stories need to be heard, I do not like Glass writing style Doubt I will read any of her books.








    13. Unlike most of her other books, this book by Cathy Glass does not concentrate on a single foster child, though foster care is certainly one of the topics discussed in the book The major part of the book covers the illness of one of her neighbours who has recently given birth and is suffering from severe postnatal depression psychosis and how this illness affects the neighbour s family Cathy herself is only a bit player in this story, but it is certainly a story worth telling Minor stories covere [...]


    14. Another wonderful read.This was very easy reading, as is usually the case with Cathy Glass books There seems to be a few stories going on here The New mum Laura, where Cathy is sensing all is not well Shelley and Darrell, Samson, and Hayley I am a fairly new reader to Cathy Glass books and the other two previous ones I have read concentrated on one fostering case I noticed a few reviewers mentioned about the multiple cases within one book, but I liked it, it s good to change the format sometimes [...]


    15. Another impressing collection of stories from Cathy Glass focusing on a few situations as opposed to just the one case We met Laura, a young mother with severe post natal depression and learnt of Cathy s role in healing that family We met Samson, a badly behaved young boy needing a few days care whilst his gran had some rest We met Shelley, a single mother to Darrell who required Cathy s services whilst undergoing an operation Cathy is a lovely caring lady and her work is extremely admirable.


    16. I love the soothing tone Cathy Glass uses to write her memoirs And there s certainly a lot to be learnt from how she finds time to be with her own children while she deals with her passion for fostering with a heart full of love and lots of patience Although I enjoyed this book a lot, I should say that the title and the front cover of it is quite misleading as the child depicted in the front cover is loved and well cared by her family to the best of its ability This book can rather be described [...]


    17. I love Cathy Glass books, however this was not my favorite of hers, the story jumped around to a few kids stories instead of focusing on one It was still a good book i just prefer the ones where we really get to know the story of one child.


    18. Beautiful as alwaysI will always rate Cathy glass s books 5 stars To see what all the kids go through, along with their families and parents its hard but a crushing reality for us all.


    19. A great book Good insights for people to read about Cathy glass is a wonderful and beautiful caring person.





    20. I always enjoy reading Cathy glass books but this one was very disappointed with kept swiping and changing.
