About this title


Carrie Cathers, a child welfare worker, has been frantically searching for six-year-old Paula Thompson for a month. She knows in the deepest part of her soul, bi-racial Paula is in grave danger, living with her abused mother and racist step-father. Then there is the matter of twelve-year-old Darren Oglesby, one of many forlorn children living in the section of the city known as “the hole”, where hope dares not venture. Compromised with birth defects, the street life beckons to usurp him, as Carrie struggles to provide him with alternatives. Taking her to a breaking point is the torturous death of four-year-old Dallas Crenshaw, a child that slipped through the cracks of the bureaucracy and her fingers. Need I mention the fate of Bart Ferris, born to an intellectually challenged mother, claiming she was impregnated during an illegal after-hours joint’s voodoo ceremony, when in reality she was raped during a drunken episode? Our heroine of maltreated children returns home nightly to a loving husband, who simply doesn’t understand why she feels compelled to dedicate her entire life to this profession. He is often stymied how to emotionally support her, when all he wants is for her to quit and stay home. Following her retirement after forty years, Carrie Cathers explores making a critical life-changing decision. This book explores the innate realities of the impact of child welfare work upon our heroine. It provides a raw accounting of child abuse and neglect. This book is not for the faint-hearted as it contains violence, harsh language and difficult sexual scenes. Will Carrie Cathers survive physically and/or emotionally the toll and ravages of her chosen profession? Will she find personal peace? For the Love of Carrie will take the reader places they never imagined existed.
