FL 'I should have known.'

Six-year-old Sheila was abandoned by her mother on a highway when she was four. A survivor of horrific abuse, she never spoke and never cried. She was placed in a class for severely retarded children after committing an atrocious act of violence against another child. Everyone thought Sheila was beyond salvation - except her teacher, Torey Hayden. With patience, skill and abiding love, she fought long and hard to release a haunted little girl from her secret nightmare - and nurture the spark of genius she recognised trapped within Sheila's silence. This is the remarkable story of their journey together - an odyssey of hope, courage and inspiring devotion that opened the heart and mind of one lost child to a new world of joy and discovery.

Donated by a non-bookcrossing friend in Kent.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Page after page kept me riveted with the power of love and the resiliency of life.


I'm leaving it on a bench outside Radio New Zealand.
