Guest Review - A Baby's Cry - Cathy Glass

This months guest reviewer is my sister Sarah. Sarah isn't a very big reader so she doesn't have her own book blog, but when she does read it is normally a true story. The following is a review of a book she read a few months ago.

A Baby's CryRelease Date: March 15th 2012
Buy It: Amazon
Add It: Goodreads

When Cathy is first asked to foster one-day old Harrison her only concern is if she will remember how to look after a baby. But upon collecting Harrison from the hospital, Cathy realises she has more to worry than she thought when she discovers that his background is shrouded in secrecy.

She isn't told why Harrison is in foster care and his social worker says only a few are aware of his very existence, and if his whereabouts became known his life, and that of his parents, could be in danger. Cathy tries to put her worries aside as she looks after Harrison, a beautiful baby, who is alert and engaging. Cathy and her children quickly bond with Harrison although they know that, inevitably, he will eventually be adopted.

But when a woman Cathy doesn't know starts appearing in the street outside her house acting suspiciously, Cathy fears for her own family’s safety and demands some answers from Harrison’s social worker. The social worker tells Cathy a little but what she says is very disturbing . How is this woman connected to Harrison and can she answer the questions that will affect Harrison’s whole life?

There is only one thing I can say about this book is it was amazing.  I have never ever cried at a book before in my life, but I did near the end of this one.  It was so sad, with having a young daughter myself I found it so sad n hard that I could not imagine what Rhianna must have gone threw as well as Cathy and her two children at the point of giving away her baby and Cathy having to give up baby Harrison to his birth mother but such a good ending to a sad story.
