If this wasn't an amazing enough book, then I find out that it is based on a true story. Wow. This historical fiction set in the 1900's and opens with Lady Anne believing she has been kidnapped, only to find out she is in a mental institution. Don't read too much about this book but, if you are at all interested, watch the book trailer. Amidst the many twists and turns it also delves into the approach to mental illness in that era. A quick easy read that had me coming back for more. I could see that this would make a great book club discussion.
This is from the website:
A deep and riveting psychological thriller set within an historical context, packed full of twists and turns, The Medea Complex explores the nature of the human psyche: what possesses us, drives us, and how love, passion, and hope for the future can drive us to insanity.
