The Unloved

The Unloved is a deeply personal account of a young girl struggling to survive in a hostile world. Lucy is eleven years old. Neglected by her mother and father, she finds herself placed in the care of a local children‘s home. We follow Lucy‘s struggle to cope with the system, negotiate new dangers and find a friend and a true home. It is Lucy‘s spirit and self-belief, coupled with a strong religious faith, which offer hope and redemption against all the odds.
