All In A Day’s Work
Becky Hope works on the front line of child protection.
Every day, her job takes her into the heartbreaking lives of the most defenceless children. In order to try to protect these children from the harm they face she must be prepared to risk her own safety.
Although Becky has witnessed some horrific events, her courage, optimism and wonderfully warm sense of humour help her though the most difficult days. But the thing that really keeps her going is the children.
Nine-year-old Sarah came into Becky’s life after being badly beaten by her mother’s violent boyfriend. Becky is Sarah’s only hope for a better life. Then there’s Martin, a young boy who has cut himself off from the world after being thrown out by his drug-addicted mother when he was just 10 years old. Becky also tells the story of Jade and Jasmine, six-year-old twins who are found wandering the streets outside their flat after their mother overdoses. The twins had nothing, apart from the one soiled blanket they shared in their freezing bare room.
This is the gripping story of one woman’s battle to protect our most vulnerable children from the horrors they face at home and to give them the safe and loving lives they deserve.
