Description

Cathy Glass, international best-selling author, tells the shocking story of Zeena, a young Asian girl desperate to escape from her family.

When 14-year-old Zeena begs to be taken into care with a non-Asian family, she is clearly petrified. But of what?Placed in the home of experienced foster carer Cathy and her family, Zeena gradually settles into her new life, but misses her little brothers and sisters terribly.

Prevented from having any contact with them by her family who insist she has brought shame and dishonour on the whole community, Zeena tries to see them at school. But when her father and uncle find out, they bundle her into a car and threaten to set fire to her if she makes anymore trouble. Zeena is too frightened to press charges against them despite being offered police protection in a safe house.

Eventually, Cathy discovers the devastating truth from Zeena, and with devastation she believes there is little she can do to help her.

i never saw it coming

poor Zena. I saw the child brode part coming because of the title, but I never imagined how much worse it could get. Thank you, Cathy for the part you played to help Zena find her confidence. I wish I could have helped her myself! strong work Cathy!

Heart wrenching story

I was amazed to find out the story was true, at every turn of the page it pulled at my heart strings. The best part is that I can read about how everybody is doing now!

By far my favorite!

I have listened to several Cathy Glass books and this has been, by far, my favorite! The horrific events this poor girl endured are unimaginable. Thank you Cathy for being such a pinnacle part of this young girls life.

Deeply disturbing, and inspiring as well

This foster family happens into the life of a girl whose life experience is horrifying to our culture, but is all too common in the world. If you think you can guess where this story will go just from the title, you need to read to learn all the rest of it. Eye-opening. Beautifully narrated by Denica Fairman. Highly recommend!

very touching

great book yet very sad story can not believe anyone could hurt children like the little girl in this story . luckily for the little girl in this story was very lucky to have people who really cared about her well being. And right on for the case manager i give her a high five investigating and taking the time that was needed and going to the extreme to make sure the little girl in this story was kept safe and protected from the ones that were traumatizing her and making sure they were convicted,and placed in custody serving time so they can't hurt anymore children! they deserve to rot in prison

Beautiful story- and updates on cathy's website!

What made the experience of listening to The Child Bride the most enjoyable?

The author sounded like she was Cathy just telling me her story. Warm, loving voice of the narrator took me right into the story. Actually, the first night i started listening i couldn't stop until the wee hours of the morning.

What other book might you compare The Child Bride to and why?

Tory Haden's books and Mary Mc Cracken's books. They were teachers but were writing about the same subjects- helping children who were in trouble.

What does Denica Fairman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The book is set in England and she sounds like a loving, English (not American/ Canadian) mom. I liked her accent.

Any additional comments?

Bonus deal: Also got 3 pairs of pants hemmed while listening to this story. Kind of like when i would save my mending or folding for Oprah to come on. Now i didn't have to wait for a specific time.And as i listened on the cloud format, it started where i left off without me having to rewind or fast forward or anything!

Devastating and inspiring

This is a book that everyone should read or listen to. It makes you aware of the horrendous suffering that so many children, boys and girls, endure every day. This book was one that I could hardly stop listening to.

Zeena is also a very inspirational person in that she was able to forgive her mother.

I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

Incredible

This is another excellent book by Cathy Glass. It's a truly incredible story of a child who lives through a horrific childhood and still finds it in her heart to forgive.

I didn't know situations like Zeena's still happened.`. Unbelievable... As sad as this child's circumstances were, she still managed to forgive one parent and move on. Truly amazing! I'm not sure I could... I've finished all the books but the novels and can't wait for the next one.

As always, the narration was fantastic!
