A Peek at WOMAN 99 by Greer Macallister


FULL REVIEW WILL BE ON MARCH 1.

Two society daughters - Phoebe who has screaming fits and Charlotte who is to marry a wealthy socialite she doesn’t want to marry.

When Phoebe is put in an institution for her fits, her sister, Charlotte, can't deal with having her sister inside so she makes herself seem mad and gets herself inside the institution too.  Charlotte blames herself for Phoebe's placement.

Charlotte finds that these women are not treated very well at all, and it is difficult to see how the harsh treatment could cure anyone.

WOMAN 99 is historical fiction, women’s fiction, mystery, and thriller all rolled into one.  If you enjoy those genres, some nasty characters, and strong female characters, you will want to read this book. 5/5

Have you read this book yet or any of this author’s books?

This was my first book by Greer Macallister.

  3. This book is on my TBR list. You really should read her other novels, which are really good! I thought The Magician's Lie was great, but her Girl in Disguise was amazing. I have reviews of both of those books on my blog!

  4. This does sound pretty interesting and I'm sure women at that time, were not treated well at all in the mental institutions available to them. I'm not even sure the women in there were actually insane.

    1. Many were NOT insane...just an inconvenience to their family or the husband got tired of her or didn't like how she wouldn't listen to him and put her in the institution.

      Pretty bad.

      Thanks for commenting, Ti.
