Maggie Hartley reaches book sales milestone

The Sunday Times bestselling author Maggie Hartley has reached the fantastic milestone of selling half a million books.

Maggie Hartley has been a foster carer for over twenty years and has looked after more than 300 children. Taking on the children other carers often can't cope with, Maggie helps children that are deemed 'unadoptable' because of their behaviour, or the extreme trauma that they've been through.

Her foster carer books are heart-breaking, powerful and ultimately uplifting true stories about the children who have come into her care. Her most recent book, A Sister’s Shame (published last week) shares the story of two young sisters who have clearly been subjected to unimaginable neglect, and it takes all of Maggie's skills as a foster carer to try to connect with the volatile little girls, who seem far younger than their years.
