She's only a number now. When Charlotte Smith's wealthy parents commit her beloved sister Phoebe to the infamous Goldengrove Asylum, Charlotte knows there's more to the story than madness. She risks everything and follows her sister inside, surrendering her real identity as a privileged young lady of San Francisco society to become a nameless inmate, Woman 99. The longer she stays, the more she realizes that many of the women of Goldengrove aren't insane, merely inconvenient - and that her search for the truth threatens to dig up secrets that some very powerful people would do anything to keep. A historical thriller rich in detail, deception, and revelation, Woman 99 honors the fierce women of the past, born into a world that denied them power but underestimated their strength.

Though the plot sets up like a thriller, this is well-researched historical fiction about the disturbing mistreatment of women and mental health in the 1800s and above all, a moving story about the power of female friendship.

Fascinating fictional exploration of the horror that was nineteenth century mental institutions. One cannot help but root for our plucky heroine and the other likable, unfortunate women she meets along the way. A nineteenth century Girl, Interrupted.
