Seventeen-year-old Louisa Cosgrove longs to break free from her respectable life as a Victorian doctor's daughter. But her dreams become a nightmare when Louisa is sent to Wildthorn Hall: labeled a lunatic, deprived of her liberty and even her real name. As she unravels the betrayals that led to her incarceration, she realizes there are many kinds of prison. She must be honest with herself - and others - in order to be set free. And love may be the key...
Louisa Cosgrove thinks she is being sent ot a friend of her brother Tom’s, where she actually ends up is in an institution for the insane called Wildthorn Hall, neck deep in a mystery.
I was expecting to find a fairly typical Historical story with a bent toward the young adult crowd, what I found was a historical story filled with intrigue, betrayal, madness and unorthodox love. It was certainly a plesant surprise.
Louisa Cosgrove is a strong and independent woman. The trials and battles that she goes through in this story are epic in size. I found myself identifying with, crying for and cheering with pride for this young woman.
I absolutely loved this story. Jane Eagland has created a window into a world that few people ever even think about in this fantastic and heartwarming tale.
