Author(s): Maggie Hartley
Kayleigh was a ghost of a girl when she arrived into foster mother Maggie Hartley's care. Pale, frail and withdrawn, it was clear to Maggie that Kayleigh had seen and experienced things that no ten-year-old should have to, that she's been conditioned to 'see no evil, speak no evil'. Kayleigh is in desperate need of help, but can Maggie get through to her and unlock the harrowing secret she carries?
Through love, reassurance and patience, Maggie starts to unravel Kayleigh's painful past - a past defined by cruelty and abuse by the very people who should have protected her. Raised by a cruel aunt after her parents abandoned her, Kayleigh was abused, left to starve and wear rags, while her aunt's children lived a life of luxury.
It's up to Maggie to help Kayleigh find her voice; to be a ghost no more, and bring those who've harmed her to justice.
