It is the end of the Great War and returning soldiers are bringing their shattered minds back home with them. For Caitlin, who is one of the first female graduates in psychology and an intern at the Toronto Hospital for the Insane, this is a critical time. Her professional and her emotional lives are complicated by a relationship with a young schizophrenic patient and the haunting encounter with a traumatized young lawyer just returned from the battlefield.
Sumptuously written and meticulously crafted, this novella brings to life an important part of Toronto’s past.
