What ever became of Sheila?

When special-education teacher Torey Hayden wrote her first book One Child almost two decades ago, she created an international bestseller. Her intensely moving true story of Sheila, a silent, profoundly disturbed little six-year-old girl touched millions. From every corner of the world came letters from readers wanting to know more about the troubled child who had come into Torey Hayden's class as a"hopeless case," and emerged as the very symbol of eternal hope within the human spirit.

Now, for all those who have never forgotten this endearing child and her remarkable relationship with her teacher, here is the surprising story of Sheila, the young woman.

Synopsis:

The author reveals how she helped a teenaged girl deal with blocked memories, overwhelming negative feelings, and thoughts of suicide before finally overcoming her legacy of child abuse.

Synopsis:

den describes her work with a sad, silent, autistic girl named Sheila. Now, in a powerful sequel, readers see how Sheila, now a young woman, has finally come to terms with her nightmare childhood of abuse.

About the Author

Torey Hayden is an educational psychologist and a former special education teacher who, since 1979, has chronicled her struggles in the classroom in a succession of bestselling books. She currently lives and writes in North Wales, U.K., with her husband and daughter.

Phumeza Sherley Mangwana, October 16, 2008 (view all comments by Phumeza Sherley Mangwana)
Iread the book Mid year of 1999 i borrowed from the City Library in Cape Town. I feel inlove with the book from the onset i connected with it from the time i read it i could not put it down i finished it the same day i had borrowed it. Results i ended up writing poem for the first time in my life entitled the "GIFT". I felt for the child in such a way that i connected it with myself growing without a father made life difficult for me because did not think i was good enough i blamed myself that my father left me. i relate with molestation as well. The book helped me to deal with unresolved issues that i had hidden deep within because of pain. i cried a lot but i healed as well. thank you Torey you are an amazing writer.

This book was amazing! I loved the emotion, and the storyline. There is nothing I don't like about this book. Although I have one question. Torey why did you ever leave Sheila? Oh, and why didn't you marry Chad?
Other then that I think your an amazing autor, person and role model.
