Présentation de l'éditeur

This eleventh memoir and latest title from the internationally bestselling author and foster carer Cathy Glass can either be read as a full eBook or in 3 serialised eBook-only parts. Will You Love Me tells the true story of Cathy’s adopted daughter Lucy.

Lucy was born to a single mother who had been abused and neglected for most of her own childhood. Right from the beginning Lucy’s mother couldn’t cope, but it wasn’t until Lucy reached eight years old that she was finally taken into permanent foster care.

By the time Lucy is brought to live with Cathy she is eleven years old and severely distressed after being moved from one foster home to another. Withdrawn, refusing to eat and three years behind in her schooling, it is thought that the damage Lucy has suffered is irreversible.

But Cathy and her two children bond with Lucy quickly, and break through to Lucy in a way no-one else has been able to, finally showing her the loving home she never believed existed. Cathy and Lucy believe they were always destined to be mother and daughter – it just took them a little while to find each other.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A mother and daughter finally finding one another... 18 juin 2014
Par Joanna M - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
By age eleven, Lucy had lived at a staggering 30 or more different addresses, being passed from stranger to stranger every few months. Born to a homeless single mother, herself the victim of abuse and neglect, Lucy was merely the next generation in her family's chaotic history.

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Lucy's Story is One I Couldn't Bring Myself to Put Down 13 septembre 2013
Par Lisa Bigelow - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Lucy's life started out very sad, the time she spent with her mother, all of the moving she had to do, social workers coming in and out of her life but not really helping. Finally, at the age of eleven, Lucy met Cathy Glass, and life started to get better. Lucy finally had stability in her life, and she finally had someone who truly cared for her. Cathy warns that Lucy's story is heartbreaking, and it is, but it is also inspiring. Cathy has touched so many lives, and helped so many children, but this story gives me hope that one day there won't be so many kids left thinking that life is hopeless. The world could use more people like Cathy Glass. I am touched each time I read one of her books. Captivating from beginning to end, "Will You Love Me?" is one of the best books I have ever read. I am very happy that Lucy found Cathy and her children. I am looking forward to reading more from Cathy Glass as soon as I can.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another heart-warming story 22 septembre 2013
Par Kikikins - Publié sur Amazon.com

I love all of Cathy Glass' stories, but this one is particularly heart-warming. If you've read any of her recent books, you know that Lucy's story is one with a happy ending. While at times it's gut-wrenching to read her story, Cathy at no point encourages pity from the reader. If anything, she makes it clear that Lucy's story, while sad, is simply a journey home in an unconventional way. After reading a dozen of Cathy's stories that end in heartbreak, even if it's for the best, it was wonderful to finally read a story where both Cathy and the child get their desires as well as best interests' met. Definitely a feel-good read!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Ms. Glass is the best writer of true stories! 7 octobre 2013

I just finished "Will you love me" last night and WOW! When you told her she got to stay I had tears dripping off my chin. ALL she ever wanted was a family and home she could call her own. I was so worried about the lack of food she was eating and was worried about organ shut down because of it, that did scare me a bit in the book. Lucy you are the luckiest lady in the whole world. You have the best Mom that one could ever ask for. I truly am sorry the system failed you so badly and took so long to get you to your for-ever Mom/Mum! Cathy I praise you from the bottom of my heart, coming from being adopted at 12 yrs old when my birth Mom/Mum was killed in a car crash. My Mom's best friend at the time adopted me but she was only 12 yrs older then me at 24 yrs old. I lost my dear Mom/Mum in 2008 and it still breaks my heart that I lost my 2nd Mom/Mum to early. I first found your book "damaged" this year when I got a kindle, and I have gone and read I think all the rest of your books. I have them on my kindle but I might have to order the whole collection for my book collection, so that I can share them with some of my friends who read. They of course have not heard of your books as I have never seen them in any stores, and I am always scanning ALL the books, so I would not have missed these! I do hope this is not the last story you have, (not meaning I want more kids to be hurt and go into care!) but I know that there are so many kids out there going through this. The wonderful story of how Lucy became your legal daughter was by far the most touching of all. I had just finished the book about Alice when I stated Lucy's book, so at the end of Lucy's book when you get Alice I figure I was already ahead! THANK YOU so MUCH, not just for your wonderful books, but most important to for being a foster Mom and a carer who really DOES care! Bless you and all the children who come through your home. I hope to see more updates of each of the kids on your website, and I look often to see if there are any updates, hoping in anticipation! I will have to say your editors have to be in tears the whole time they work on your books, bless them for helping you put out some awesome books! Sad but true!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Wishing for a little more depth but worth reading 7 octobre 2013

I had been waiting for this book. I I'm glad I finally got to know how Lucy became part of Cathy's family. The book was a little short compared to other books in this series. I wish Cathy had gone in to a little more depth with this story. It's still a great story. Thank you Cathy for all you do to help these children. They are lucky to have you I'm their lives.
