Quick Overview
"Sheila was a deeply disturbed six-year-old when she came into Torey Hayden's life - a story poignantly chronicled in One Child. Over the course of five remarkable months, this dedicated special-education teacher profoundly touched the life of this abandoned, abused little girl. Then Torey lost touch with the child she had helped to free from a hellish inner prison of rage and silence. But seven years later, Sheila was back, now a gangly teenager with bright orange hair - no longer broken and lost, but still troubled and searching for answers. This marked a new and extraordinary chapter in a story of dedication and caring - one that would test the strength and heart of both Sheila and her one-time teacher. Torey would once again answer the call to help Sheila, this time guiding her through a difficult yet glorious transition into young womanhood." - back cover.

How we describe the condition of our books

We are very proud of the condition of the books we sell (please read our testimonials to find out more!)

New: Exactly as it says.

As New: Pretty much new but shows small signs of having been read; inside it will be clean without any inscriptions or stamps; might contain a remainder mark.

Very Good: Might have some creases on the spine; no hard cracks; maybe slight forward lean and short inscription inside; perhaps very minor bumping on the corners of the book; inside clean but the page edges might be slightly yellowed.

Good: A few creases on the spine, perhaps a forward lean, bumping on corners or shelfwear; maybe an inscription inside or some shelfwear or a small tear or two on the dustjacket; inside but page edges might be somewhat yellowed.

Fair: In overall good condition, might have a severe forward lean to the spine, an inscription, bumping to corners; one or two folds on the covers and yellowed pages; in exceptional cases these books might contain some library stamps and stickers or have neat sticky tape which was used to fix a short, closed tear.

Poor: We rarely sell poor condition books, unless the books are in demand and difficult to find in a better condition. Poor condition books are still perfect for a good read, all pages will be intact and none threatening to fall out; most probably a reading copy only.
