Summary

They thought she was insane. But what if she was telling the truth?

1942, New Zealand. Edith’s been locked away for a long time. She was just five years old when she was sent to Seacliff Lunatic Asylum. Fifteen years later, she has few memories of her life before the asylum, but longs for one beyond it. 

When she survives a devastating fire that destroys her ward, Edith is questioned by the police and a young doctor, Declan Harris. Intrigued by his beautiful patient, Declan begins to doubt the official reasons for her incarceration. Is she truly mad - or could the impossible stories she told as a child actually be true? 

Time is running out. With Edie awaiting a new and permanent treatment, soon there will be little of her left to save. Meanwhile intrigue has tipped into obsession - Declan needs to uncover the truth, but in doing so he will risk losing everything. As he sets out to save her mind, will he lose his own?

Loved it !

Found this Reality Hard to put Too Turn off Until today there has never been proof these methods work. They only Turn Patients into Zombies. So well Researched I hope The Doctor never sent her back. A part two would be good great Material for a new mini series . The Narrator was wonderful I Highly recommend this Book what ever your beliefs are. !

Very good. Reminded me of the Silent Patient at first. Slightly predictable maybe towards end.

So many mixed emotions

So I hated this book and couldn't put it down, except when I had to because I couldn't take anymore. Then I had to know what happened next and picked it back up again. There were times I was so angry and times I was less angry. There was some drag and repetition in inner dialogue but not enough to push me away. This book would have had 5 stars if it weren't for the ending. It all worked until it didn't. This is another author who had to twist just one too many times. Either end twist would have been ok, just not both at the same time.
