The child called Laura was the worst case Dr Richard D'Ambrosio had ever encountered. As a toddler she had been held in a frying pan and horribly burned. At 12 years old she was labelled schizophrenic and housed in a gloomy institution run by Catholic nuns. Scarred physically and emotionally, she had never spoken a word. But one Sister believed she could speak - if they could find someone to unlock the terrifying memories that kept her mute. That person was Dr D'Ambrosio. This is the story of professional skill and human courage, he records his rescue of that little girl.
