it was amazing

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.
