Publisher's Summary

A gritty drama that will appeal to fans of The Throwaway Children and authors Nadine Dorries and Kitty Neale.

When little Terry and Nancy arrive at the door of St Saviour's Children's Home, they seem shell-shocked after being orphaned in the fire that killed their parents. Terry is terribly damaged by his experiences, though the concerned staff, especially Angela Morton, suspect that there is something more sinister behind his disturbing behaviour.

Angela shares her anxieties with Mark Adderbury, a psychiatrist volunteering at the home. They've grown closer recently, but Angela, still grieving the loss of her husband, feels that Mark needs more from her than she can give. Then why does she feel so jealous at the arrival of Staff Nurse Carole, who seems to have captured Mark's attention?

They must all pull together to get to the bottom of what really happened to Terry and Nancy, but the truth may be harder to take than they realise....

    "Disappointed"

    Although the title is The Little Runaways, I found the story to be more about the staff at the home than the actual children which wasn't what the title suggested.

    Story
    "Lovely"

    Great little story, sad and quite harrowing in places. Not a load of laughs, I feel the author could have lightened the story in parts, but enjoyable nevertheless.

    "Lindy"

    I loved this book and found it hard to put down. The story is gentle and unfolds beautifully. The ending was well rounded but I would love to have read that Angela married Mark!

    "Cathy Sharp"

    This book is brilliant. It is a great follow up to the last book Cathy wrote called the orphans of Halfpenny street.
    Hope Cathy writes another one.
