BOOK JACKET BLURB: Louisa Cosgrove is Louise Cosgrove–not Lucy Childs. Or, is she? A horse-drawn carriage takes her to the wrong place: Wildthorn Hall, an asylum for the insane. This must be a great misunderstanding. They strip her naked, of everything–undo her whalebone corset book by hook. They take her identity. But she is still seventeen–still Louisa Cosgrove–isn’t she?

To untangle the mysterious, wretched present, she remembers the past.

I wished I were a boy.

Locked away in the dingy bowels of the hall, she feels a fire burn inside her. She remembers her cousin. She remembers Papa.

I want to be a doctor.

She is determined to escape–and only love will set her free.
