Asylum Book Details: Audience

Consistent positive feedback has come from women over age 35 (LOVE IT!), especially boomer women who began business careers in the 1970s, and men who buy Asylum for mothers, sisters, daughters and wives.

A Book Club Favorite. Recommended by Book Club Central.

Sisters in Crime for ALA Book Club Central named Asylum as a September Pick: Historical Fiction. (ALA = American Library Association)

Asylum is set in 1899 and the mid-1970s, when the rise and fall of manufacturing, changing mores and folkways, and struggles for equal rights, prompted passionate discussion of social issues that remain relevant today, making Asylum a book club favorite. A modern Gothic thriller with family drama, history, mystery and romantic elements, Asylum has something for every member of a book club.

Abbreviated Study Guide Themes & Questions are included in both print and eBook formats of this new edition. An expanded Study Guide is available on this website.
