Summary, etc.:
When Charlotte Smith's wealthy parents commit her beloved sister Phoebe to the infamous Goldengrove Asylum, Charlotte risks everything and follows her sister inside. The longer she stays, the more she realizes that many of the women of Goldengrove aren't insane, merely inconvenient - and that her search for the truth threatens to dig up secrets that some very powerful people would do anything to keep hidden.
A gripping story that exposes the Gilded Age’s tarnished veneer, when women who didn’t acquiesce to the standards of the day were locked away. Powerful and electrifying, Macallister is at the top of her game.” - FIONA DAVIS, bestselling author of The Masterpiece and The Address
