There is no doubt in my mind, said the psychiatrist...your Tina has been sexually abused. Sally Grey stumbled out of the doctor's office, numb with shock and disbelief. Such things didn't happen to families like the Greys, wealthy, proper familes who raise fine, well-bred children. But Dan and Sally's 5 yr old was clearly troubled, retreating into a world of fantasy and rage.
