    1. Asylum is an exciting, gripping story, set in the late 1800s, of a young Scottish girl, whose mother died bringing her into the world. Her father who never showed her any love, blaming her, and trying to destroy her spirit with guilt, for the death of her mother. Instead, at 16, he sent her to America, with nothing, in fact all but sold her as an indentured servant to a man who owned and ran an insane asylum for women. There she finds women, most of whom, much like her, were inconveniences for m [...]


    2. As an avid reader and continual student of history, this book humbled my knowledge of this era and sociological impacts of gender studies. Sherry Logsdon's extensive and impassioned research is apparent from an academia standpoint, yet the story is so enthralling, you don't realize you're getting an education while being entertained with the immense tapestry of the tale of Isobel, her charges and the Asylum. A "young-adult" novel that captured this over-40 male's attention from start to finish, [...]


    3. If you are a young adult you must read Asylum. It is filled with historical names and facts, combined with a creative storyline. Insane asylums, women's right, suffrage, slavery, immigrants. It covers it all.


    4. I really enjoyed this book. 16-year-old Isobel is sent from her home in Scotland to work in a rural West Virginia asylum in the late 1800's. In effect, she is an indentured servant, although, even after her term has ended, she is without any means to escape her position as head mistress at a home for discarded upper class women.This is an interesting work of historical fiction with a wonderful, sensible, warm-hearted heroine who reads and writes to keep herself grounded while surrounded by trage [...]


    5. Sherry Logsdon’s book, Asylum, is a compelling and haunting work of historical fiction set at the turn of the century. Although events take place in the US, they could easily have happened in almost any country at this time.The title and cover drew me to read. Having worked in mental health for many years, and having heard stories of women with no actual symptoms of mental illness being placed into the old asylums, I was pleased to find a novel highlighting the plight of these women. Sherry Lo [...]


    6. What a storyline! I have yet to read this but from looking at what its about I definitely plan on it. This aims its clutches at my weakness for mental institutions, I can never get enough of them, or the different ways they are perceived, so this one has a definite spot on my to read list.


    7. WowWell written and interesting, this book drew this reader in and held her attention to the end. History, love (of several types), adventure and truth all in one book. Very nice.


    8. Great young adult novel. Easy to follow. Sucks you right in and makes you a part of the book. Based on factual history. Excellent ending. Waiting in anticipation for the following sequels.


    9. Loved it ! Can't wait for another one. The story flowed smoothly. The poems preceding the chapters gave the book an interesting twist. The ending was great!.


    10. This book takes you back in time just as if you were one of the characters and consumes you until the very last word! Hope to see more books from this author soon!!


    11. Thank you so much for the copy! I will edit my review once I receive the copy and finish reading it!
