    Very Entertaining.

    Dr William Carter is a housekeeper's son who was lucky to have a sponsor who paid for his education. He has a new job in an asylum, and is shocked at the way the patients are treated. The doctor in charge has a good reputation and Will has always wanted to work with him, but finds the man is nothing like he expected. Miss Helen Grey has been a patient/prisoner in the asylum since her mother died ten years ago. The doctor in charge and the so called nurse who control her are in the pay of someone who wants her kept out of sight. The way these places were run and the treatments they were subject to in that era is truly scary. Anyone could use any excuse to commit a person, especially women possibly forever. Our hero is a wonderful, honest man and a very good doctor. Our heroine is a brave woman who has somehow managed to survive the worst that life can throw at her. A very entertaining story with great characters.

    Madness of Miss Grey

    Yorkshire 1882 "If I go back, they'll never let me go again." That was the thought of Helen Grey as she met Dr William Carter as she tried to escape the asylum. This story pulled me in right from the first page and did not let go until the end. Helen had been in the asylum for ten years since she was almost sixteen . Put there by someone who did not want her known and with no way to escape. She wasn't crazy, although at times with the way she was treated, it was almost hard not to be. Will was the son of a former housekeeper for the home before it turned into an asylum. He had been able to train as a doctor and he hoped to get recommended by a staff physician, Dr. Sterling. Thus the journey to helping Helen get out of the place. They are really attracted to each other, but she has been so mistreated it is hard to trust. An almost gothic story (which I am a fan of!) that takes us down the path of how horrible the conditons of asylums where back in this time and how women were mistreated. Could Will help her and get her away or would it jeopardize his position? Julia Bennet is a new author to me and I look forward to reading more by her and would recommend this story! I read this through NetGallery

    Love and intrigue

    Dr William Carter is a doctor in an insane asylum. The son of a housekeeper, he does not fit into society. The ton thinks that Miss Helen Grey, a former actress is insane. After being admitted to the asylum for ten years, she has barely held onto her sanity. When She meets Dr Carter who is new there, she hopes for a chance to prove she is sane and get out as she is as much prisoner as patient. He understands that she is sane and decides to help her escape. Although feelings are involved, they can't let them distract from what they must do. She has someone who is paying for her to be kept against her will. Love is the one thing that she must fight for as well as freedom. I loved Dr Carter, a good doctor who is down to earth and Helen who has a strength that is to be envied Great characters and a wonderful story. I loved it. I received this book from Net Galley and Entangled Publishing for a honest review. I voluntarily read this book.

    A good story

    This is a wonderful book! I loved the story line and the characters. They were such strong characters; Helen enduring all that she did and Will being able to fight for her and go against the system. The reader was taken on an emotional roller coaster! The book makes you sad (for the situation Helen was in), mad (at the treatment received from “caretakers”), and happy (that someone helps Helen). I like how the author wrote about a subject/situation that unfortunately happened in history until the medical profession became more regulated and advanced in the psychological area. I couldn’t put the book down it was such a great book.

    Low star rating but could have been better.

    All of society believes former actress Helen Grey to be mad, but after a decade imprisoned in a crumbling Yorkshire asylum, she’s managed to cling to sanity Dr. William Carter knows Miss Grey is using him, but he can’t blame her. She’s no madder than he is yet she’s spent years in this place. This is a debut work by this author. It is just OK and maybe the author shows promise but I'm not sure I would read another book by this author. I would have to check to see if the next one has a better premise. This book is a sad and compelling story. It has it's moments but it couldn't hold my interest. Because it has it's romantic moments I gave the book 3.4 of 5.0 stars for story line and characterization. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley to read . This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
