*****

Maggie Hartley is one of the UK's most prolific foster mothers. This inspiring collection includes three heartbreaking, true short stories about the children who have passed through Maggie's care.

TOO SCARED TO CRY
When Ben and Damien arrive on Maggie's doorstep, the two toddlers are too scared to speak. More disturbingly still, their baby half-brother Noah is completely unresponsive - he doesn't smile or play or crawl. The three siblings have been conditioned to be seen and not heard, and it's up to Maggie to unpick what has caused this terrible void.

THE GIRL NO ONE WANTED
Eleven-year-old Leanne is out of control. With over forty placements in her short life, no local foster carers are willing to take in this angry and damaged little girl. Maggie is Leanne's only hope, and her last chance. If this placement fails, Leanne will be put in a secure unit. Where most others would simply walk away, Maggie refuses to give up on the little girl who's never known love.

A FAMILY FOR CHRISTMAS
A tragic accident leaves the life of toddler Edward changed forever and his family wracked with guilt. Maggie must help this family grieve for the son they've lost and learn to love the little boy he is now. But will Edward have a family to go home to at Christmas?

These heartwarming and inspiring short stories show the power of a foster mother's love, and her determination to help the children who come into her care.

Note: These stories have previously been published as individual ebooks.

True stories of foster care and adoption and one foster mother's attempts to help the children in her care heal from abuse, neglect and trauma.

Book Description:

A collection of true stories from the Sunday Times bestselling foster carer Maggie Hartley. Contains TOO SCARED TO CRY, THE GIRL NO ONE WANTED and A FAMILY FOR CHRISTMAS.

About the Author:

Maggie Hartley has fostered more than 300 children while being a foster carer for over twenty years. Taking on the children other carers often can't cope with, Maggie helps children that are deemed 'unadoptable' because of their behaviour or the extreme trauma that they've been through. She's looked after refugees, supported children through sexual abuse and violence court cases, cared for teenagers on remand and taught young mums how to parent their newborn babies.
