Summary
Seventeen-year-old Louisa Cosgrove is locked away in the Wildthorn Hall mental institution, where she is stripped of her identity and left to wonder who has tried to destroy her life
Summary
After her father's death, 19th-century teenager Louisa Cosgrove believes that her mother is sending her to live with family friends -- but the carriage transporting her deposits her at Wildthorn, an insane asylum. There, the doctors insist that Louisa is not Louisa; she is, they tell her, a very sick young woman named Lucy Childs, and she isn't going anywhere. This Lambda Literary Award-winning novel combines a harrowing exploration of the era's "mad houses" with the tender love story of Louisa/Lucy and Eliza, an attendant at Wildthorn. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
