From the bestselling author of One Child comes the story of three of former special education teacher Torey Hayden’s most extraordinary challenges.
Nine-year-old Cassandra, kidnapped by her father and found starving, dirty, and picking through garbage cans—is a child prone to long silences and erratic, violent behavior.
Charming, charismatic four-year-old Drake will speak only in private to his mother—while his tough, unbending grandfather's demands for an immediate cure threatens to cause irreparable harm.
And though she had never worked with adults, Hayden agrees to help fearful and silent eighty-two-year-old massive stroke victim Gerda—discovering in the process that a treatment's successes could prove nearly as heartbreaking as its limitations.

🔮Verborgen diepten

Sad and touching. The author's style is at times too academic, but the professional experiences she shares are precious. It shows you how much time and efforts, including professional help, commitment and caring are needed to help an abuse child recover. Its also interesting to look at approaches used in those times to treat patients.

This book had several stories to it although Cassandra being the main sometimes hard to follow it was a good read.
There are plot twist which were unexpected

Talking helps our minds to organize what happened—helps us understand how it occurred and how we felt and what we did. Sort of like you have a big laundry basket full of clean washing, sitting in the middle of your bedroom floor. It takes up lots of room. You see it every time you come in your room and maybe you’ll trip over it, if you aren’t watching out. But if you organize it—fold all the towels, roll up the socks—then you can put everything away neatly. Talking does that for our thoughts. It lets us put away things that have happened to us, so that they aren’t in the way every time we are thinking.
