I really enjoyed this book and enjoyed both women’s story lines. Clara’s story was so heartbreaking and sad. It is horrible to think that there was a time when father’s (and husband’s) could get rid of their daughters (and wives) by having them committed. The conditions people were forced to live in once committed are heartbreaking. Izzy’s story is also riveting. The stories come together as Izzy helps go through a long closed asylum with her foster parents she finds some letters. Letters that begin to tell Clara’s story.
