Faye is 24 and pregnant and has learning difficulties as a result of her mother's alcoholism. Faye is gentle, childlike and vulnerable and normally lives with her grandparents, both of whom have mobility problems. Cathy and her children welcome Faye into their home and hearts. The care plan is for Faye to stay with Cathy until after the birth, when she will return home, and the baby will go for adoption.
Given that Faye never goes out alone, it is something of a mystery how she ever became pregnant, and Faye says it's a secret. To begin with Faye won't acknowledge she is pregnant or talk about the changes in her body, as she worries it will upset her grandparents, but after her social worker assures her she can talk to Cathy she opens up. However, this leads to Faye realizing just how much she will lose, and she changes her mind and says she wants to keep her baby. Is it possible Faye could learn enough to parent her child? Cathy believes it is, and Faye's social worker is obliged to give Faye the chance.

I love the narrator! I've read all of Cathy Glass's books. Each one of her books is unique. This one pulled at me and touched my heart in a deeper way than some other ones. I was worried about how the ending would work out, but I was surprised and happy.

another excellent book!
This was a wonderful book as always! So moving! While I teared up many times reading this book, I cried openly at chapter 20. What a wonderful example of courage, true love, and selflessness Faye is! I'm sure we can all learn some lessons from her.
The reader is absolutely fantastic! I don't think I could listen to anyone else read these books!
