Overview

Sunday Times bestselling author and foster carer Casey Watson’s inspiring memoirs Mummy’s Little Helper and Little Prisoners combined in a single volume with her deeply moving latest title Breaking the Silence, about two troubled little boys who both desperately need a loving home, and find comfort and friendship in the most unlikely of places.Breaking the Silence is the true story of Jenson, a nine-year-old boy who has been left home alone while his mother goes on holiday, and Georgie, who has been living in a children’s home since he was a toddler and is autistic. Both boys are about to become members of the Watson family and test Casey to her limits. Are their differences unreconcilable?When Casey takes in two innocent and frightened ‘unfosterable’ children who do not know what it means to be loved in Little Prisoners, she is shocked by the levels of neglect that the pair have been subjected to. Casey is desperate to help these poor, lost children, who have been taken away from their family because they were considered at risk, but before she can even start to understand the horrific things that have happened in the past, she has to teach them the most basic of behaviours.Ten-year-old Abigail is Mummy’s Little Helper, a child left to cope alone since she was 3 with her mother who has progressive multiple sclerosis. She’s suddenly no longer invisible to the care system, and needs support, but the emotional strain of her total change in circumstances starts to show when she arrives at Casey’s home. She doesn’t know how to cope without huge burdening responsibility. Casey is determined to find solution for this brave girl.
