it was ok

This book was well written, it just wasn't what I was looking for. I am looking into the history and story of old Asylum's and I thought this would be an extra fiction note. While the Asylum is a huge factor in the story it's more on the romance level that I was looking for.
The puzzle in the book however does lead itself to a goo deal of thought. Life in this story goes full circle of the wife of a Dr. in the Asylum, she becomes involved with a paient and returns home to then lose everything and is taken into the asylum herself to be flirting with a long time friend/ Dr. now treating her. Iroinc is the word at play for me.
Not a bad book by any means fast read with much to think about.
