Beautiful Child : The Story of a Child Trapped in Silence and the Teacher Who Refused to Give Up on Her Paperback

Description

A stunning and poignant account of an extraordinary teacher's determination never to abandon a child in need from the internationally bestselling author of `One Child' and No. 1 bestseller `Ghost Girl'. Seven-year-old Venus Fox never spoke, never listened, never even acknowledged the presence of another human being in the room with her.

Yet an accidental playground 'bump' would release a rage frightening to behold. The school year that followed would prove to be one of the most trying, perplexing, and ultimately rewarding of Torey's career, as she struggled to reach a silent child in obvious pain.

It would be a strenuous journey beset by seemingly insurmountable obstacles and darkened by truly terrible revelations.

Yet encouraged by sometimes small, sometimes dazzling breakthroughs, as a dedicated teacher, Torey remained committed to helping a 'hopeless' girl, and patiently and lovingly leading her toward the light of a new day.
