This haunting, multi-generational tale of the horrors that have been done to women under the guise of mental health is the creepy Victorian tale of two elderly sisters who reveal more than a few family secrets after a lifetime of forced seclusion.
From the Publisher:
Iris Lockhart is stunned when she receives news that her great-aunt Esme, a previously unknown woman edited out of her family's history, is being released from Cauldstone Hospital, where she has been confined for more than sixty years, and soon discovers that Esme holds the key to long-hidden family secrets that could change her life forever.
Iris Lockhart, a dress shop owner in Edinburgh, receives a shock when she discovers that she has been named the caretaker of Esme Lennox, a woman who has spent the last 61 years in a mental institution. Esme turns out to be Iris's great aunt, sent away and kept a secret since the time she was a teenager. The novel slowly untangles the knot of Esme's tragic life as Iris discovers the dark secrets of her family history.
