Silent Screams

The sketch-book revealed a life full of woes.

There were heart-rending scenes of abuse. The victim was seen pleading for mercy, but kicked around into submission. The Smiths had been lauded for adopting a deaf-and-mute girl.

It was the suicide of the girl which threw light on bizarre happenings in the house.

Mary wondered how many times the had walked past the house, but failed to hear the screams in the heart of the unfortunate child.

Mary was the mother who had given the child for adoption, compelled by her poverty and abusive alcoholic husband.
