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 receives news that her great-aunt Esme 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.
