New Book "When Love is Not Enough" by Cherry Willoughby, Mother of a Violent Criminal, Exposes the Truth Behind Her Daughter’s Life
Bath, United Kingdom, February 24, 2013 –(PR.com)– Synopsis: When Cherry and John married, they had everything a young couple could wish for, a beautiful home, a nice car, two adorable dogs and a great life. All that was missing for Cherry was children, but motherhood was not going to come easy so they decided to adopt.
Soon their home was filled with children’s laughter and for Cherry life was wonderful.
However the eldest daughter begins to display troubling behaviour which raises the concerns of everyone around them.
