A gritty drama that will appeal to fans of The Throwaway Children and authors Nadine Dorries and Kitty Neale.
When little Terry and Nancy arrive at the door of St Saviour's Children's Home, they seem shellshocked after being orphaned in the fire that killed their parents. Terry is terribly damaged by his experiences, though the concerned staff, especially Angela Morton, suspect that there is something more sinister behind his disturbing behaviour.
Angela shares her anxieties with Mark Adderbury, a psychiatrist volunteering at the home. They've grown closer recently but Angela, still grieving the loss of her husband, feels that Mark needs more from her than she can give. Then why does she feel so jealous at the arrival of Staff Nurse Carole, who seems to have captured Mark's attention?
They must all pull together to get to the bottom of what really happened to Terry and Nancy, but the truth may be harder to take than they realise . . .
Cathy Sharp is happily married and lives with her husband in a small Cambridgeshire village. They like visiting Spain together and enjoy the benefits of sunshine and pleasant walks, while at home they love their garden and visiting the Norfolk seaside. Cathy loves writing because it gives pleasure to others, she finds writing an extension of herself and it gives her great satisfaction. She says, `There is nothing like seeing your book in print, because so much loving care has been given to bringing that book into being.'
