The Ballroom Anna Hope

1911: Inside an asylum at the edge of the Yorkshire moors,where men and women are kept apart. It is the story of how John and Ella meet and how they, and Dr Charles Fuller react to that meeting. Overlaying the plot is the historical part of the story, which takes a hard and detailed look at how the poor were regarded and treated at the time.
I found this book spellbinding and compelling. The characters were very different from each other and all changed in some way or another during the course of the story. A captivating read full of obsession, love and revenge. I really couldn’t put this down and would highly recommend it.
I received a copy of this novel from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Click on the cover to go to the Amazon UK book page.
