Ghost Boy, Paperback

Ghost Boy Paperback



In January 1988, aged twelve, Martin Pistorius fell inexplicably sick.

Within eighteen months he was mute and wheelchair-bound, being cared for at centres for severely disabled children.

What no-one knew is that while Martin's body remained unresponsive, his mind slowly woke up, yet he could tell no-one, a prisoner inside his own body.

During this time, he suffered abuse of a kind that is barely imaginable, yet still he kept the spirit of hope alive.

It wasn't until he was twenty-three that a gentle therapist realised he was alert to everything and, along with his parents, assisted his road to recovery.

Since then, against all odds, he has fallen in love, married, and now runs a thriving web design business.

Martin's extraordinary story is a deeply moving account of the power of love.
