Women of Magdelene (A brief review)

I received this book as part of a bookcrossing ray!

The women of Magdelene are dying and no one seems to care, least of all the haughty Dr Kingston, the director of the genteel Ladies' Lunatic Asylum.
Set it the shattered post-Civil War South, Women of Magdalene is a beautiful tale of deception, betrayal, greed and self-sacrifice.  

My (brief) review:
Often deeply moving, I found this book hard to put down. It was extremly thought-provoking and gave a good insight into the time when it was set.
