Without any sense of stability, it's amazing Lucy held up as well as she did - to most people who met her, the little girl seemed quiet and eager to please, due to her lifetime of trying to fit into the households of strangers. Yet Lucy was internalizing her pain and isolation. Beneath the surface was a girl who was brimming with anger at a world who didn't want her, through absolutely no fault of her own. Never having had the support, Lucy struggled to keep up with her schoolwork and she also dealt with her anxiety through food. All in all, at the tender age of eleven, it seemed that everyone had already given up on Lucy.
Then Lucy came to live in yet another foster home. Thanks to Cathy Glass, an experienced carer, Lucy slowly began to deal with her past and to build a solid sense of self for both the present and future. And, as Glass soon discovered, at the root of it all was Lucy's simple wish -- to have someone to love her. Once she had that, Lucy could truly conquer anything.
Having read many of Glass' other books about fostering, I can say with confidence this one holds up to her usual excellent standard. However, as Lucy's story has been intertwined with those of other children, as Glass eventually adopts her, this book was especially anticipated and welcome.
Best wishes to both mother and daughter, having found one another when life could so easily have sent them down another path! It seems it was truly meant to be.
