Overview

A new memoir from Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author Cathy Glass.When Cathy receives a call about a terminally ill widower terrified of leaving his son all alone in the world, she is wracked with sadness and indecision. Can she risk exposing her own young children to a little boy on the brink of bereavement?Eight year old Michael is part of a family of two, but with his beloved father given only months to live and his mother having died when he was a toddler, he could soon become an orphan. Will Cathy’s own young family be able to handle a child in mourning? To Cathy’s surprise, her children insist that this boy deserves to be as happy as they are, prompting Cathy to welcome Michael into her home.A cheerful and carefree new member of the family, Michael devotedly prays every night, believing that when the time is right, angels will come and take his Daddy to be with his Mummy in heaven. However, incredibly, in the weeks that pass, the bond between Cathy’s family, Michael and his kind and loving father Patrick grows. Even more promising, Patrick is looking healthier than he’s done in weeks.But just as they are settling into a routine of blissful normality, an unexpected and disastrous event shatters the happy group, shaking Cathy to the core. Cathy can only hope that her family and Michael’s admirable faith will keep him strong enough to rebuild his life.

    This is a heart wrenching story I just bawled and read it in a day.  I have read a number of
    Her books and most of the stories are horrific.  Makes my childhood look great.
    Being a foster parent would be so difficult kudos to her.  Highly recommend but
    Sorry Cathy I find you somewhat smug though.

    Heartbreaking and makes you cry

    I don't often cry reading books, but I did during this one. It's a story about a little boy who had lost his mother before he knew her and is about to lose his father to cancer. Also, the foster mother rather falls in love with the dying dad. The poor little boy hears his dad's spirit the day his dad dies. It's a sweet, sad book.
