Some brief overview of book
A startling and poignant memoir of three people's victimisation and abuse - and their heartbreaking but ultimately successful steps to recovery, with the help of Torey Hayden, an educational psychologist and author of several best-selling books. children who won't speak (versus those who can't speak), usually due to a trauma in their lives. It is Hayden's job to bring the child out of that silent and troubled world by getting to the root of what happened to them. In Twilight Children Hayden tells three gripping stories.
At the center of the book is the story of Cassandra, a nine-year old girl who was kidnapped and abused by her father for two years and, by the time Hayden starts working with her, is ready to lash out at anyone who tries to befriend her. Running parallel to Cassandra's story is that of four-year-old Drake who won't speak to anyone except his mother. The third narrative is about Gerda, an elderly women who, after suffering a stroke, refuse to free herself from her self-imposed silence and crippling depression.Told with compassion, sensitivity, and, believe it or not, humour, Twilight Children is the story of one woman's fierce determination, the struggles of three people, and their amazing road to recovery.
