Through A Mother’s Tears: Short Book Review

Through A Mother’s Tears: The tragic true story of a mother who lost one daughter to a brutal murderer and another to a broken heart

By Cathy Broomfield

Publication Date: 28th June 2018

Genre: Biography/Memoir

Publication: Thistle Publishing


When Cathy Broomfield’s youngest daughter Kirsty disappeared, Cathy hoped she had gone to stay with friends, to escape her brutal and bullying husband. But as the days passed with no word from Kirsty, a loving daughter who spoke to her mum every day, Cathy became increasingly anxious, until the day the police arrived at her door to tell her they had found a body, when she knew her worst fears had been realised…

Through a Mother’s Tears is the poignant and heartbreaking story of how Cathy lost not only Kirsty, her youngest daughter, but Kirsty’s big sister Hayley, who died of heartbreak when the agony of her baby sister’s loss became too much to bear.



Through a Mother’s Tears is such a sad story. I could still feel the pain seeping through the pages of the book. I just can’t even imagine how much pain Cathy might have went through when her daughters died.

Through a Mothers Tears is a kind of story that stays with you….. Even after ending the story, I kept on thinking about Cathy and her family and also about the ruthless murderer who just devasted and destroyed a such a happy family….

If you are a memoir reader then you should definately give this poignant tale of a mother who lost her two girls a read…
