This was the second Torey Hayden book that i had read and after i read beautiful Child i didnt think that anything i read again would be so heart wrenching and so real, that was until i read One Child it lived up to the expectations of the first book that i had read and more, it had me laughing and crying and not wanting to put it down. Torey Hayden is a fabulous author and 1 of the most gifted teachers that i have ever heard of and long may she keep up her excellent work.
This was the 1st Torey Hayden book i read, since i have read Beautiful Child and Ghost Girl, She is an amazing teacher and writter loved every line of One Child fantastic book and loved the little girl sheila. Definately a must read will have you laughing and crying the whole way through. Well Done. Have just brought The Tiger's Child and Twilight Children cant wait to read them.
This is the first Torey Hayden book i read, and i was not disappointed. I have brought and read every book she has published since; that was how impressed i was with this book.
It is a very sad story, but thanks to Torey, a good and happier ending is reached for the poor girl. It gives a good honest insight to how people must deal with such terrifying events such as this.
I could not put this book down till i had finished it. It keeps you hooked and you just want to know what will happen next and how it will all end.
This book is a true inspiration to all, and i highly recomend it to all.
My advice: buy it now!
