Emily Arsenault, a Pioneer Valley resident, skillfully combines psychological suspense and true crime in her latest novel. A young mother named Frances is taken from her home and family, and confined to the Northampton Lunatic Hospital in the late nineteenth century. Over a century later, another young mother, who inhabits the same house that Frances had, begins to fear for her own sanity and the safety of her child. She hopes that unraveling the clues in Frances’s diary may lead to her own salvation.
