During the Twilight Children book, Torey Hayden goes into major details about helping two children and an eight-two-year old lady through a huge crisis in each of their lives. I don't know how one person can go through so much drama and listen to the different stories each person has to tell and still be able to help them through their problems. Even when Cassandra would act up and call her stupid, Torey had every intention of helping the child no matter what it took. Then, she deals with a four year old child who can't talk to anyone, except his mother, and later on she finds out the mother was lying about that. This definetly shows how much trouble a women would go to in order to help people she doesn't even know. In my opinion, this is a heart felt story that more people need to read.

I remember reading this book while I was a teenager. I couldn't put it down. Torey Hayden is an awesome story teller. The world needs more counselors and teachers like her who are willing to go that distance to help our children of today.

I enjoyed this book, but it fell short of reaching my expectations. I love all of Hayden's other books, and I only liked this one. She includes no detail about her personal life. By the end of a Hayden book, I felt drawn in and like I knew the characters. I feel like this was written from a more clinical perspective.

I have read all of Torey Hayden's books and he tells a compelling story that captures your attention from the start. She is a gifted therapist and author

I was assigned this book to read as part a class. I have read other Torey Hayden books and am equally pleased with this book as I was with the others. This is a well written, insightful, and compelling book!

This is a sad and tragic story and should never have happened. The first such manuscript along these lines written first person was by a man named Ken Grant from Massachusetts who grew up pretty much his whole life in state child care and wrote his story before Dave Pelzer introduced his. Grant's book was suppressed while Pelzer's made it through and Ms. Hayden has done an incredible job of offering a very realistic third party look at the same issues.Anyone who works with special needs must read her books-- all of them!
