Wednesday's Child | Shane Dunphy
21 posts | 1 read
In three amazing stories childcare worker Shane Dunphy reveals a world of hidden heartbreak and survival against the odds. When Shane meets her, Gillian is starving herself to death and in thrall to a mother more interested in abusing and manipulating her daughter than cherishing and protecting her. Though he tries to help, it seems Shane is just another adult destined to fail Gillian ... For the daughter of disturbed violent parents, Connie is an amazingly well-adjusted A-grade student. But when Shane finally gets behind the facade, he unearths a shattering truth behind her apparent normality ... Cordelia, Victor and Ibar are three loving siblings left with a hopelessly alcoholic neglectful father. It’s a race against time to see if their father can ever become the kind of Dad he wants to be, or if they are destined to be split up and sucked into the childcare merry-go-round ...

Thanks @I_Like_Big_Books for tagging me for #wondrouswednesday 1. I have a ton of books, ebooks, Kindle books etc but I can only read them if I‘m in the right “mood” 2. No, I have motion sickness issues 3. Television series especially GoT 4. Starbucks and popcorn 5. And if you‘re interested @stresseddesserts @Wolverine551 @Traceelizaxox

I_Like_Big_Books GoT is definitely a distraction! 😄 2d

Texreader @Dragon Me too. Especially airplanes! The long international flights would be so much easier to tolerate! 2d

#wondrouswednesday @Eggs

🔹️ I keep a list of ARCs and read on a first come first serve basis. For books that are not Arcs or author requests I read whatever strikes my fancy at the time.
🔹️ I drive to the office but it only about a 7 minute drive from my house so I don't even have to listen to a book.
🔹️ My husband and for children.
🔹️ Not really a snackers but in the am I drink coffee and water in the afternoon.
🔹️ Tag your it!🤣

Eggs 4 children?!? Your plate is full!🤗💗👏🏻 2d

1. I read whatever catches my eye first when I‘m looking for a new book, unless I‘m looking for something specific.

2. I don‘t use public transit but I listen to audiobooks in my car.

3. Not much distracts me from reading unless the book hasn‘t drawn me in. The number one way to tell if I don‘t enjoy a book is if I‘m not engrossed.

4. Cucumbers!

1. There‘s no rhyme or reason. If I see something at the library, look on my shelves or Kindle for unread books, read a review...
2. Don‘t ride public transportation except trains when on holiday in Europe, when I‘m too excited to read.
3. Hubby, sports on tv
4. Ice tea, chocolate 😊

1. Usually whatever is due back at the library or whatever I need to mail out for a book club!
2. Wish I could but I get bad motion sickness if I do
3. Seems like everything but probably mostly TV
4. Don‘t usually snack or drink when I read - so clearly should read more often to lose weight 😂
5. Tagging some new followers @Smoky_Embers @Traceelizaxox

1. Depends. Usually just go by my mood. Lately though mostly using the #booked2019 prompts for guidance
2. Used to read on the bus. One too many crazy rides though have now made it so I get sick/headachy even just from being on my phone
3. Work/life
4. I don‘t usually make a point of snacking while reading

1. Macarena! Although I listened to more underground goth stuff like Faith and the Muse because I was dark and broody.
2. Technically Libra but I celebrate my birthday in June and that's Cancer.
3. Stephen King first sparked my interest in reading when I was a kid.
