Torey Hayden is a teacher of children with severe handicaps mental and physical.This is a sequel to ONE CHILD...Hayden lost touch with the child she help free from a hellsih inner prison of rage and silence.Now 7 yrs later Shelia was back no longer broken and lost but troubled and searching for answers.

This is a great author and I never tire of reading her books.

The sequel to One Child, and followup to what happened to Sheila, one of Torey's classroom kids.

Personally I found the story heartbreaking because even as an teenager Sheila has problems developing close personal relationships, and still shows many of the signs indicating the abuse and abandonment she recieved as a child.

This is the sequel to "One Child" (also in my bookshelf). For everyone who never forgot Sheila, the silent little girl in Torey Hayden's class, this is her update, and how she was as a young adult.

The continuing story of Sheila, who showed up in "One Child". Even if you haven't read that one, this tale stands on it's own.

This is the follow up book to One Child. The story of Sheila, who was one of Torey Haydens earlier children she taught. I too had wondered what became of Sheila after i read the first book. I loved that there is a follow up. If you can, read One Child first, but if you can't the beginning will give you a short brief on Torey and Sheila's time together. Wonderful true read.

As with all of Tory Hayden's books this one did not disappoint. You always wonder how some of the troubled children make out and this follows Sheila's life and completes the story from the previous book. A very good book.

Hayden is a remarkable educator and this book gives a glimpse into the life of one of her students several years after she taught her. Although Hayden is a special educator, anyone who cares about children will be touched by her dedication and commitment to help those whom society may have let down--not just those in the field of special education.

This is another fantastic book by Torey Hayden. I read the first book, One Child, written when Torey was first introduced to the little girl. That book followed her first year with Torey, and one always wonders what happened as she grew older.
This book is the sequel, many years later, and tells the story of her struggles, failures, and successes.
It is written in a very interesting, honest way. This is another one of those stories that cannot be put down until you reach the end; I would recommend it to anyone who wants a great story with its ups and downs, but is written with sincerity and honesty.
