A secret once gone will find her back home. Back to her place in society. See feels safer in the asylum. A young doctor Thornfollow see's that she has a sharp mind and offers her a safe haven in turn for help.
This was different than most teen historical fiction that I've read before. Despite it being different it was a fairly informative read. I can't say that it was an enjoyable read. This is only because of the nature of the storyline. It's not a quick read it's a deep read. That will cause you to think. But that's not always a bad thing. Sometimes it's good that books make you think.
