Read the latest shocking and moving true story from specialist foster carer Casey Watson, The Silent Witness. We have five reading group sets of 10 copies to giveaway.
It’s the night before Christmas when Casey and her husband Mike get the call, asking them to take in a twelve-year-old girl, Bella. Bella is stuck in one of the most unimaginable positions. Her father is on a ventilator, fighting for his life, while her mother is currently on remand in prison. Despite claiming she attacked him in self-defence, Bella’s mother has been charged with his attempted murder.
Bella is refusing to say anything about what really happened. The trouble is that she is also the only witness…
Can Casey persuade Bella to reveal the truth?
The Silent Witness raises themes on foster care, the criminal justice system and domestic violence, proving to be a highly sensitive and emotive read.
