A Boy Without Hope is the heart-breaking story of a boy who didn’t know the meaning of love.
Casey Watson is back, doing the job she does best – rolling up her sleeves and fostering the children who, on first meeting, seem like hopeless cases. But when she meets Miller, even Casey begins to doubt if this child will ever be able to accept love. Emotionally tormented by his biological parents, Miller has never understood how to establish meaningful relationships, and his destructive past, and over 20 failed placements, is sealing his fate in society’s social scrap heap. After violent behaviour and failed attempts to help Miller, Casey decides to make an intervention, implementing a severe regime that strips Miller of all control. But soon the emotional demands of Miller’s case start to take their toll. Just how far is Casey willing to go to save Miller from his inner demons?
