ABOUT THE BOOK
Chicago, Winter, 1891
Rachel is in danger. She s seen too much.
She creeps along the cement walls through the dank underbelly of the asylum. She d never planned to leave her quiet farm life, never thought she d find a place in the city, never imagined she d be in the kind of danger that would have her cowering in Dunning s cold, labyrinthine basement.
Jenny has finally found her place. After a childhood of abuse, she has friends, a real job, and her only wish is to give her adopted son the kind of life she never had.
A life of stability, without the risk and uncertainty of a father.
But when Jeremy, Rachel s brother, stumbles into their warehouse, asking for help to find his missing sister, Jenny s carefully constructed life begins to crumble.

This book was hard to read because it literally fell apart on me. The binding was not very good and every single page fell out! With that said, the story was intriguing. Luecht's second book in the Portraits of Grace series holds a harrowing story of the Dunning Asylum. Having a background in Psychiatric Social Work and previously worked at a state mental institution, I was extremely interested in the subject matter of the book. I was curious and did some research on the actual asylum in Chicago.
*I was sent a complimentary copy of the book from the author in exchange for this review. A positive review was not asked for or expected. All opinions are my own.
Happy Reading ya'll,
