'My name is Ruby. I live with Barbara and Mick. They're not my real parents, but they tell me what to do and what to say. I'm supposed to say that my bruises and black eye came from falling down the stairs. But there are things I won't say. I won't tell them I'm going to hunt for my real parents. I'm going to be with my real family. And I'm not going to let Mick stop me.'
"Kate Hamer's novel is both gripping and sensitive - beautifully written, it is a compulsive, aching story full of loss and redemption." (Lisa Ballantyne, on The Girl in the Red Coat)
"Moving, convincing and completely compelling. I read through the night, desperate to know the little girl's fate." (Erin Kelly, on The Girl in the Red Coat)
