I just loved this book. I spent 30 years working as a qualified nurse in acute psychiatry in several large mental health units in Scotland and have several years experience in IPCUs, so can relate to the content of this book. I might not have known the staff or patients, or then again I might have, who knows, but I remember like incidents from my time as a student nurse till the time I finally decided I was too old to be rolling about the floor trying to restrain. I laughed and I cried as I was reading this book and have recommended it to several like minded friends.

OMG this book is harrowing, what these poor children went through is terrible. I worked in mental health for over 30 years and didn’t think I was easily shocked.... how wrong I was. I had heard horror stories of what used to happen but as a young woman I just assumed they were that, just stories. It is only in later life that I have since discovered they were in fact true and I’m angered that a so called caring profession could allow this to happen.

Would you consider the audio edition of Sophia's Secret to be better than the print version?

Not read the print version

Any additional comments?

Very disappointed to learn that the sequel was not on audio books

As much as I love and live rugby, this book was such a let down. Would not recommend it. I very seldom don't finish a book, but this one I did.
