Torey Hayden is best known for her autobiographical works such as One Child which chart her career as a special needs teacher. Overheard In A Dream is her first fictional book to be published in the UK although it has previously been published under the title The Mechanical Cat in Sweden, Italy, Finland and Japan. James is a recently divorced child psychiatrist living hundreds of miles from his own children. He is intrigued by the case of a nine year old boy he is treating. Conors life is dictated by a bizarre set of rules and rituals; he does not make eye contact and barely communicates with those around him. He is trailed by the wires he must wear in order ...

I borrowed this book from my Auntie for my holiday, as there is nothing better than sunbathing with a good book. I am a huge Torey Hayden fan and I have read most of her true story books, whereas this one is a little different, this is a Novel. I tend to be put off books when I find out they aren't true, but being a fan of Torey Hayden I thought I'd give this one a go. This is one book that definitely took me a while to get into. Once I get into a book it is hard for me to put it down so I usually read it within a few days of the holiday, whereas I found myself reading for the sake of it, hoping it got better. Well, let's just say it did get better. ... Read the complete review

First published in 2008 460 pages Torey hayden is an educational psychologist and a special education teacher and normally writes about her experiences with the children she worked very close with. If you have read any of her books before, you may think the same as me, that she is very repetitive in many of her books, which quickly becomes boring. However, this book moves away from this and becomes more of a novel. ~The story~ The book starts with Conor who is a nine year old boy and has been referred to James (a psychiatrist) through his doctor. He had been diagnosed as having Autism. However, after James had been having regular sessions ... Read the complete review

I bought this book after spotting in the local supermarket and as a HUGE Torey Hyaden fan I was very surprised not to have heard of it. When I began reading it I was quite shocked at how unlike her other books it was. Firstly Torey Hayden writes about her experiances with some very troubled children whilst working as a special needs teacher and she has wrote some truely amazing books. The first thing I noticed about this book was that it didn't seam to feature Torey herself. It's actually written from a third person point of view about another male working with a troubled child. After re-reading the back cover I also discovered that this is actually ... Read the complete review
