  The trend of locking women in asylums was so widespread that Nellie Bly, the pioneering journalist, made her name by getting herself committed to a women's asylum. Madeleine Roux is the New York Times bestselling author of the Asylum series, which has sold into eleven countries around the world and whose first book was named a Teen Indie Next List Pick, and the House of Furies series. A graduate of the Beloit College writing program, Madeleine now lives in /5().

The woman in white shows a sudden agitation when Walter explains about his new job, but also speaks with love about Mrs. Fairlie, the late owner of Limmeridge House. Walter helps the strange woman to catch a cab, only to encounter two men looking for a “woman in white," who has escaped from a mental asylum. Get this from a library! Women of the Asylum: Voices From Behind the Walls, [Jeffrey L Geller; Maxine Harris].

For a book that has the misuse of the lunacy certification and asylum admissions system at the heart of its plot, The Woman in White is in fact pretty vague about the mad-house involved – and. The fully illustrated book chronicles Autumn's experiences in a mental ward and a young girl (Emily with a "y") in Victorian England who is admitted into an insane asylum. The second edition was published in but is now out of print, pending replacement with an updated print edition.
