Ah, this makes me so happy. A great review from a major trade publication always makes my day, and this one for WOMAN 99 from Publishers Weekly totally made my week!
The bottom line: “Macallister sensitively and adroitly portrays mental illness in an era when it was just beginning to be understood, while weaving a riveting tale of loyalty, love, and sacrifice.“
I also particularly loved this part, which really sums up so much about the book: “Though Charlotte narrates, Macallister also gives voice to a motley crew of women who, at the mercy of male whims, hide multitudes.“
The whole thing is available right here. Yay!
