Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will you love me I love this book. I have read all of Cathy's books but this one won my heart as Lucy is one special person to have gone from neglected to a inspirational person. It's a book once you start reading you can't put it down. I would like to wish all the family the best for the future,can't wait for the next book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will You Love Me Yet another totally Brilliant story by Cathy Glass.I so wished that I had been able to experience the kind of love Cathy provides for ALL the children. She is a REAL inspiration. Having said that,I am now aged 58,and have held the same view of Social Workers as Lucy does since I was taken into care on a "Place of Safety Order". during the years between my 11th and 18th birthdays.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I couldn't do it I have a child myself and I can identify with the difficulties new parents face but I always put my son first and made sure he was fine before even acknowledging my own needs and to think that someone who loved her child so much was unable to attend competently to her basic needs worries me so much. I have read almost all of Cathy's books but Lucy's story touched a nerve and really made me want to just scoop up all the neglected children in the world and take them home. Cathy and Lucy are lucky to have each other and I definitely recommend this book if you are reading in sear h of a happy ending.
