Historical fiction about a girl who gets herself admitted to an asylum to help save her recently committed sister and finds the conditions not as advertised and that many of the women there were not admitted because they were insane. An interesting read although I didn‘t care much for Charlotte‘s backstory especially her romance. The ending was a bit too tidy for me but overall I enjoyed this.

In the late 1800s, Goldengrove was promoted as a #hospital where mental illness could be cured with innovative treatment. Charlotte doesn't believe her sister Phoebe belongs there so fakes her own illness in order to rescue her. But, first Charlotte has to find her. Loved it! I don't have a picture of such a place, but I do have a pic of the author at a library event! .#SavvySettings @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Eggs

#Woman99 #GreerMacallister

Late 1800‘s San Francisco. Charlotte Smith‘s parents commit her sister, Phoebe, to an asylum. She fakes madness & follows her sister inside. She becomes inmate Woman 99. She finds many women are not insane. Powerful people do not want the secrets to get out. Gripping story of the power of female courage. All things turned around & made for a great ending for Charlotte & Phoebe. This historical book is recommended!

I was thoroughly engaged with this historical fiction about a young woman who, inspired by Nellie Bly, bluffs her way into an asylum to rescue her sister. I would have loved to learn more about some of the other women, as they were fascinating characters (particularly Martha and Nora), and would have happily read a much longer book to get to know them!

Charlotte‘s parents have placed her sister in an asylum in 1888 and Charlotte believes this move unwarranted. So she gets herself secretly committed to the same asylum as woman 99 to try to rescue her. The asylum portions are harrowing and well-done but I found a backstory dragged a bit. Overall, I enjoyed it.

Hooked_on_books @Cinfhen Yes, and I love her posts! She‘s so supportive of other women and it warms my heart. ☺️ 3y

I do not read either thriller, or historical fiction very often. Woman 99 is a good historical thriller. I discovered it from an ad and thought it sounded like something my best friend would read. So we did a buddy read. We agree the main character is not very bright, but that doesn't taint the book too much. The ending was perfect.

If your sister was committed involuntary to a mental illness institution, would you jump off a bridge to follow and save her? That‘s what Charlotte does, in 1888 California. Her choice is naïve but exemplary, and she has to muster *all* her resources to save her sister. The story was propulsive. Once I hit 50% it was unputdownable. Macallister is now a must-buy for me.

What a good book!!! Charlotte‘s sister is taken to a mental institution, so she gets herself committed. The story that follows is sad, infuriating, and hopeful. This is eye opening as to the deplorable treatment of women throughout history. I found myself feeling so many emotions and rooting for all these poor souls. Part romance, part suspense, and big part historical fiction. Highly recommend!!! 💜💜💜

Last weekend I went to the Virginia Festival of the Book in Charlottesville. I went to a panel where Greer Macallister speak. I just had to read it. While I wouldn‘t consider it a thriller as it was billed, I enjoyed the book and would most definitely recommend it. Who wouldn‘t be interested in a book where the narrator gets herself admitted to an asylum to save her sister?

In 1890s #SanFrancisco, Phoebe Smith is committed to Goldengrove asylum. Younger sister, Charlotte, blames herself & devises a rescue plan. Macallister masterfully weaves Greek Muses, romantic intrigue, & #historical detail prompting reflection on how far we have come, yet how far we have to go to achieve justice and #equality for #women and for compassionate mental #healthcare. #FavoritesofMarch #LiteraryLuck @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @vkois88
