yet another heart breaking, heart warming story about foster care, and the challenges of such occupation. Kasey, you done it again. With your strength, courage, and devine love for the children.

Oh my heart, this book melted me. To be blatantly honest I had read this book because it came in a bundle with another Casey Watson book I had wanted to read. After finishing it I went on to this, and surprisingly found myself liking this even more. How Jensen and Georgie were had me so emotional and when Casey had maligned Jensen by accident I spent my time yelling 'Awwwww but Jensen!!!' He seemed the sort of mischievous kid that could cause headaches, yet deep down was so sweet and simply ...more

I did enjoy this book but I did also get quite frustrated. poor editing left some spelling and grammar errors as well as well known phrases which were written down wrong!

To say casey is meant to be some amazing foster carer I do find myself wondering if she is acting dumb to create story lines or, if events were genuine, if she is actually capable?? How many times will we have to read about her grandchildren being hurt or put in a dangerous situation by foster children, simply because she lacks

Yet again i put my self out there to be let down, After reading the last book by Casey Watson i thought id give the next one a try as i already had it. I feel just the same as i did about the last. It was ok if you have a wee while to kill but i wouldnt go recommending it to anyone. I have one more of her books that i may read as i think its a waste not to but i doubt ill read anymore after that one. Sorry Casey its just not for me!!!

I have read a few of these type of books, including a couple by Cathy Glass, and really enjoyed them and this one was up there with the best I'd say. Very interesting and insightful, and very easy to pick up and read chapter after chapter. I whizzed through this book pretty quick and now I've finished it I've immediately looked up her other books and marked them in my 'to read' pile! Highly recommended :)

This was a very emotionally charged book. I found myself getting frustrated right along with Casey at several points in the book. These poor kids and what they go through. I will never understand it. As a mother, it horrifies me what these parents will do.

What a truly beautiful story of the love of a foster parent to bring out the best in the children entrusted to them. I have often debated whether to do fostering but I just don't know if I'd have the patience to do what Casey does. A truly amazing family.

I want to like this book as I do every other one of Caseys but the poor grammar mixed with the fact I think Casey was a bit careless in how she handled the boys in the story has held me back.

I found this one harder to get into than the previous books I have read by Casey Watson. It's still a pretty good story.

It takes special people to be able to foster.. I appreciate that Casey shares her stories.. As always, terrific story.

Like all her books the story is engaging. The children she works with have so much issues and it's great to read the journey that they all take under her care. Keep writing them Casey!
