This review is from: Unfashioned Creatures (Kindle Edition)
captivating, controlling and unusual. This book is about early incursions into mental health reform - but more interesting. The protagonists are not likeable but they are complex and fascinating. This book looks at the nature of 'madness' and the treatment of such in the early 19th Century. From Montrose to Holland to London. The characters all have their failings but their weaknesses are our weaknesses. This is a REAL book for real readers. You will want to give it up but somehow you can't and when it's finished and gone you quietly mourn for it's passing.
