Through a Mother's Tears by Cathy Broomfield - Guest Blogger Book Review

By 11:45 PM , , , , , , , , ,

When Cathy Broomfield’s youngest daughter Kirsty disappeared, Cathy hoped she had gone to stay with friends, to escape her brutal and bullying husband. But as the days passed with no word from Kirsty, a loving daughter who spoke to her mum every day, Cathy became increasingly anxious, until the day the police arrived at her door to tell her they had found a body, when she knew her worst fears had been realised...

Through a Mother’s Tears is the poignant and heartbreaking story of how Cathy lost not only Kirsty, her youngest daughter, but Kirsty’s big sister Hayley, who died of heartbreak when the agony of her baby sister’s loss became too much to bear.

Jennifer's Review
What a wonderful but heartbreaking story. 
It's about a mother who had two special daughters named Kirsty and Haley who are very close to each other as sisters. 
One day Kirsty tells her mom she found a new boyfriend and that she plans to marry him even though she hardly knows him. 
After getting married, bad things start to happen, and one day the worst thing ever happens. 
Later, Haley leaves home and gets a boyfriend and starts doing bad things, then the same thing that happened to her sister happens to her. 
Its a hard, heartbreaking story to read. 
I give it 5 stars because I liked it even though I cried through most of it.
