Summary

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. 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. This harrowing audiobook will appeal to listeners of The Hospital and Cathy Glass.

The openness of the story as their lives are shared with everyone

In some parts the story was lacking information which would of made the story more compelling

There’s nothing like a mothers love

Emotional strong and very honest. God bless you and your babies. I have read this book twice and each time I’ve had to have pauses due to the over whelming feeling to cry

Strongly suggest deleting the part where the juror discusses what happened in the deliberations!

Tragic

A moving and tragic story of a mother’s love for her beautiful children. Maybe it will help someone not fall victim to abuse or substances. I hope this mother has found some peace.

Pulls you in

This story was gripping, and pulled me in from the start. The narrator is engaging, and could have been the author recounting her own story to me, she does it so well. I couldn't stop listening, and am left heartbroken for all the family and loved ones... especially Mum. Definitely recommend.

Truly Heartbreaking

My heart just broke for the Brookfield family. To lose two children in such ways and still have the faith to move forward is heroic.
