For decades, former special education teacher Torey Hayden has been a light in the darkness for severely troubled children, and she has chronicled her determined efforts, triumphs, and breakthroughs in a series of internationally bestselling books, beginning with her powerful and poignant One Child. But it wasn't until she left the classroom that she faced three of her most extraordinary challenges. While working in the children's psychiatric ward of a large city hospital, Hayden was introduced to seven-year-old Cassandra, a child who had been kidnapped by her father and found three states away, starving, dirty, and picking through garbage cans. What she had suffered during that time was a mystery, since she refused to speak of it, and all attempts to get to the root of her erratic, increasingly violent behavior had hitherto failed. This would certainly be one of Torey Hayden's most difficult cases, for how do you reach a child so horrifically abused that she views every attempt to break through her defenses as life-threatening? Drake was a charming, charismatic four-year-old who managed to participate fully in his preschool class without uttering a single word. He would only speak to his mother, who brought the boy, clutching his beloved stuffed tiger, Friend, to Hayden. Pressured by Drake's tough, unbending grandfather, who demanded immediate results, the therapist feared that overly stringent treatment would only tear his family further apart. And though a specific course of action seemed clear, even she was unprepared for the shocking truth about little Drake's condition. Then there was Gerda, eighty-two, whom a massive stroke had rendered fearful and unwilling to engage in conversation with anyone. Though Hayden had never worked with adults, she agreed to help when all other efforts had failed, and discovered in the process that what Gerda could do was nearly as heartbreaking as her limitations. A woman suffering in the twilight of her years and two children trapped in the ever-darkening shadows, these are the cases that would test one healer's courage, compassion, and skill, and ultimately reaffirm her faith in the indomitable strength of the human spirit.… (mere)

I have read all of Torey Hayden's books. One Child is still, by far, my favorite. ( )

A young girl who was kidnapped by her father, and who may have suffered abuse so horrific that it left her unable to speak about that period of time, a bright, engaging young boy who seems unable to speak to anyone other than his mother, and whose demanding grandfather expects him to be "fixed" immediately, and an 82-yr-old stroke patient who is unable to speak; these are the voices of the subtitle.

This was such a compelling read, that I finished it in a single day. As always, Hayden writes with compassion and insight. ( )

I really like Torey Hayden's books, especially the books about her early work in special education. Somehow they seem a bit more formulaic now and the publisher always adds ridiculous subtitles...still I think she is a really amazing woman and I find her work fascinating. ( )

An interesting true story of the author's work with three clients, each of whom has problems (presumed psychological) relating to speaking. We learn some of the background of these clients, how the author worked with them, and the outcome of that work. Torey Haydn has written many books about her work and they are all moving. I am always amazed at the lengths the human psyche will go to to protect itself. ( )

Spesialpedagog Torey Hayden forlot klasserommet og tok jobben i den psykiatriske klinikkens barneavdeling, med spesialområdet selektiv mutisme, selvvalgt stumhet. Straks ble en selsom trio hennes ansvar: 9 år gamle Cassandra nektet alle å komme nær henne, 4 år gamle Drake snakket kun med sin mor, og gamle, alltid sterke Gerda valgte stillheten da et slag reduserte henne og tok fra henne uavhengigheten.

Med et hjerte av gull, en tålmodighet av dimensjoner, og en detektivs deduktive klarsyn ruller Torey Hayden opp de tre forskjellige historiene som mysterier, og finner overgrep og maktkamp, men også varme og håp, og den medmenneskelighet som er grunnlaget for all vår styrke. Skumringbarn er en uforglemmelig bok, som fortalt med sin følelse, sensitivitet og humor minner oss om den kraften og skjønnheten mennesket besitter.

Torey Hayden er født i Montana i USA i 1951, og har praktisert som spesialpedagog, universitetslektor og barnepsykiater i tillegg til forfatter. Hennes bøker forteller om hennes egne opplevelser og erfaringer fra undervisning og oppfølging av barn med spesielle vansker og behov. Torey bor i dag i Wales. Bøkene hennes er oversatt til 28 språk.
