Six-year-old Sheila was abandoned by her mother on a highway when she was four. A survivor of horrific abuse who never spoke and never cried, she was placed in a class for severely retarded children after committing an atrocious act of violence against another child. Everyone thought Sheila was beyond salvation - except her teacher, Torey Hayden. This is the remarkable story of their journey together - an odyssey of hope, courage and inspiring devotion that opened the heart and mind of one lost child to a new world of discovery and joy.
