I meant to give this a four but I'm bumping it up to five I'm always curious about the reasons why people give one star ratings to books I enjoy but so many of these are because eww lesbians it makes me want to fucking spit What century are we in I don't give a damn what genitals are in a love story as long as I believe the characters' feelings and the girls in this were just beautiful together So five to slightly make up for the idiotsFour originally just because it made me so uncomfortable but then again it's supposed to It's not a pleasant read most of the time it's bleak as hell The whole section set in the asylum is claustrophobic and horrible being set up by your scheming moneysociety obsessed family and sent to an insane asylum when you're not ill but the you try to convince the doctors you're sane the convinced they are that you're delusional That makes me feel ill just the idea of being wrongly incarcerated by people who WON'T LISTEN I feel sort of weird for being so into it as a story setting cough let me just recommend When the Music Stops by John T Fuller but I suppose I just like the fix it element of fiction being able to do what actual history often didn't and give at least some of these women their freedom back after they were locked up and drugged and abused for such shocking crimes as wearing unsuitable clothing for a young lady of her status NO or Excessive book reading and study leading to a weakening of the mind SCANDALOUS or Desiring to ape men by nursing an ambition to be a doctor Self assertiveness in the face of male authority Obstinacy and displays of temper Going about unchaperoned for example travelling to London alone in a third class railway compartment PASS THE SMELLING SALTS OH MY GOODNESSThe love story is such a contrast it's so tender and almost innocent It seems even lovely in contrast with the asylum bit and that seems worse in contrast with Louisa and Eliza It's a total emotional see saw going from one to the other and there are parts I still feel a bit up in the air about Aunt Phyllis should have had a kick in the teeth come on and I sort of wish it had been intended for adults rather than YA because I think there's a biggerdeeper story that could have been told but on the whole it was really well done these captivating characters in a real gutpunch of a situation and one of the sweetest love stories I've read in ages I'm glad I gave it a chance

E is still seventeen still Louisa Cosgrove isn't she Who has done this unthinkable deed Louisa must free herself in ways than one and muster up the courage to be her true self all the while solving her own. Contains minor spoilersWhile I did find this book very easy to read from the smooth transitions to the depth of characters there were a few things that bothered me I'll start my nitpicking at the actual writing There were a fair amount of typos which if you know me is frustrating Things like Was I good child or took if off and other such problems sometimes made me remember that I was reading someone's first novel instead of letting me get sucked into the story Okay So ignoring that fact I read this book very uickly trying to figure out who had put Louisa in Wildthorn The obvious answer was Tom and although by the end Louisa finds out the treachery goes much deeper than that it was still right Basically she ends up hating everybody for what happened except her parents and her unfortunate cousin GraceThe reason Louisa was put into the asylum is also not clear from the beginning but through flashbacks we find that she's a forward thinking girl who likes doing 'boy' things like doing experiments and she wants to be a doctor like her father While Papa is supportive no one else is When he dies her dream is basically crushed but she's still very defensive about itAs if this weren't enough Louisa is also a lesbian She had some crush on Grace before being put in Wildthorn asylum but obviously couldn't say anything about it And Grace got married to a guy named CharlesWhat bothers me about this is it seemed like the book was saying Because she's an independent girl she also must be attracted to other girls And it really has nothing to do with her being put in the asylum because no one but her knew about it Also as a warning to anyone who wants to read it there is a short nondescript sex scene between Louisa and another female character at the end

WildthornTwisted mystery and falling into an unconventional love Originally published in the UK this well paced provocative romance pushes on boundaries both literal and figurative and do beware it will bind you too. I was wandering through Waterstones one day looking for new books to read See I’m a person who tends to buy a book by it’s cover The cover is the first thing I noticed What drew me in was the lovely woven Victorian corset with intricate details and a pretty font with a creative book titleIf a cover is striking triggers something in me I usually buy the book without reading the blurbI do though have to get a good feel of it by reading the first few pages Then I go on my merry way I like pretty book covers that’s my kick It may not be a good to ‘judge a book by it’s cover’ but it works for me I have found some pretty good books and dull ones this wayI started reading it and I have to say I enjoyed it Louisa Cosgroves is our 19th Century heroine She is determined and fierce to get her own way Which is what I like It helps to get the story moving when the character has something to fight for She wants to be a doctor like her father This is a time when it was virtually impossible for women to be anything other than a wife and a mother maybe a maid or a nurse It was awesome to read Louisa’s early years They really made me understand her betterShe is then sent to Wildthorn Hall an asylum She is betrayed by people she loved and thought she could trust She meets people she grows as a character Some characters came across as flat and as though their words were from Louisa’s mouth such as Tom Aunt Phyllis GraceThat is until we get to the end which I thought was a big let down For me it was resolved far too uickly it felt like all this growing as a character was all for nothing She reverted to her old ways of thinking A bit too happy too It felt like I was reading Sophie Kinsella after a whileThe subject of her sexual identity wasn’t thought about once maybe briefly but it was just a passing thought Which really needed to be addressed I thought It was a pivotal role in this character’s development This was a time when it was forbidden People were sent to mental institutions for this kind of thing as it was considered a mental illnessI know it is common practice these days for people to put prepositions at the beginning of sentences even in books I myself do it but I do find it highly irritating I try to avoid it When reading a book it tends to stop me in my tracks I also get irate when I read a book it uses prepositions correctly as a linking word but then it uses a comma by a preposition It is really unnecessary a preposition is there for the reader to give them a breather anywayOverall I was uite happy with this book and I give it four out of five stars Due to a few flat characters and a rushed ending which could’ve lasted another fifty pages I would like to recommend it for anyone who loves things that don’t adhere to social normalities
