It was gripping like a thriller and the story strangely believable but for me the weakness lay in the relationship depicted between the hero - an American woman renting a house in Italy photographing Etruscan tombs - and her best friend married to the most ghastly, pompous and domineering man. All right, we are talking 1922 here but for Sally not to have fought for her friend's freedom harder (especially after the main thrust of the story when time passes and Harriet remains in the asylum), did not ring true. I know women were indeed shut up in lunatic asylums by their male relatives like chattels, but I also think women's friendships found ways to circumnavigate such outcomes, especially when they are drawn as independent people.
I enjoyed it though and it stayed with me.
