Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Torey is an educational psychologist and has written about a number of her sad cases. She is an extraordinarily determined lady here revealing the shocking story of a child too traumatised to communicate at all. It is a real tear-jerker.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Ghost Girl by Torey Hayden

Jadie never spoke, never laughed, never cried. She spent every waking hour locked in her own private world of shadows. But nothing in Torey Hayden's experience had prepared her for the nightmare Jadie revealed to her when finally persuaded to break her self-imposed silence. It was a story too painful, too horrific for Hayden's professional colleagues to acknowledge.

But Torey Hayden could not close her ears… or her heart. A little girl was trapped in a living hell of unspeakable memories. And it would take every ounce of courage, compassion, and love that one remarkable teacher possessed to rid the "Ghost Girl" of the malevolent spirits that haunted her.
