    I almost quit on this story but I always slog on, so I did. The premise is quite good but there are do many inconsistencies and unlikely events which make the story quite unbelievable. For example, dr Frank often tells Sandy to just tell the truth about the events that led up to the attack on his father but he doesn’t until he is forced to under several treatments of sodium pentathol.

There he has to hang on to his sanity while being experimented on with truth serum (sodium pentothal) or insulin injections, followed by relentless and devious interrogations.

    "What it Takes to Be Human" by Marilyn BoweringMarilyn Bowering is one of my favourite authors, based mainly on her book "To All Appearances a Lady".

    I was amazed by the way the storyline went back and forth, just like life, but then the ending surprised me, and made me feel betrayed by the author, she just threw it all away :(Anyway, still a good book to go through even though it failed to quench my thirst for answers.

    This book is set mostly in an asylum for the criminally insane. There is much horror and treachery seen there, but in the end there is much hope for Sandy GreyLiz

    Given the subject - war, family, mental health, sexuality all playing an role - I expected much. Unfortunately, I was very bored throughout. Pity. Much potential but it just felt unfinished.
