The Tiger's Child : The Story of a Gifted, Troubled Child and the Teacher Who Refused to Give Up on Her Paperback
by Torey Hayden
Torey Hayden returns with this deeply-moving sequel to her first book, One Child (the Sunday Times bestseller).
After seven years, Torey is reunited with Sheila, the disturbed 6-year-old she tried to rescue. Sheila was a deeply disturbed six-year-old when she came into Torey Hayden's life - a story poignantly chronicled One Child.
The Tiger's Child picks up the story seven years later.
Hayden has lost touch with the child she helped to free from a hellish inner prison of rage and silence.
But now Sheila is back, now a gangly teenager with bright orange hair - no longer broken and lost, but still troubled and searching for answers. This story of dedication and caring that began in childhood moves into a new and extraordinary chapter that tests the strength and heart of both Sheila and her one-time teacher.
In The Tiger's Child the skilled and loving educator answers the call once again to help a child in need through her difficult yet glorious transition into young womanhood.
