About the Book:
Not far from Luella and Effie Tildon’s large family mansion in Inwood looms the House of Mercy, a work house for wayward girls. The sisters grow up under its shadow with the understanding that even as wealthy young women, their freedoms come with limits. But when the sisters accidentally discover a shocking secret about their father, Luella, the brazen older sister, becomes emboldened to do as she pleases. But her rebellion comes with consequences, and one morning Luella is mysteriously gone. Effie suspects her father has made good on his threat to send Luella to the House of Mercy and hatches a plan to get herself committed to save her sister. But she made a miscalculation, and with no one to believe her story, Effie’s escape from the House of Mercy seems impossible—unless she can trust an enigmatic girl named Mable. As their fates entwine, Mable and Effie must rely on each other and their tenuous friendship to survive.
I really liked this book, and found myself thinking about it long after I finished it. It was an amazing multilayered story and I really got attached to the characters. I loved the author's writing style and the voices used in this tale really brought the book to life and the plot was such an interesting heart-breaker.
The story is an engrossing one as well as vivid and deeply moving. It's one of those books you cannot put down and immediately wish for more when you are finished. A moving, important and unforgettable read. I absolutely recommend this book.
