Teaser Tuesday: The Medea Complex by Rachel Roberts

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Want to join? All you have to do is grab your current read, flip open to a random page and share a non-spoiler teaser. Easy, right? Then just write it in the comments or make your own post and put the link in the comments. - But I like to share 2 teasers instead of one.

The Medea ComplexI am currently reading The Medea Complex which I received from the author recently, I am about a third of the way through, and so far I like it. I have some problems with it, but I like the setting a whole lot! And it is very intriguing! By the way; isn't that cover gorgeous?

Summary: ****BASED ON A TRUE STORY***
1885. Anne Stanbury - Committed to a lunatic asylum, having been deemed insane and therefore unfit to stand trial for the crime of which she is indicted. But is all as it seems?
Edgar Stanbury - the grieving husband and father who is torn between helping his confined wife recover her sanity, and seeking revenge on the woman who ruined his life.
Dr George Savage - the well respected psychiatrist, and chief medical officer of Bethlem Royal Hospital. Ultimately, he holds Anne's future wholly in his hands. 
The Medea Complex tells the story of a misunderstood woman suffering from insanity in an era when mental illnesses' were all too often misdiagnosed and mistreated. A deep and riveting psychological thriller set within an historical context, packed full of twists and turns, The Medea Complex explores the nature of the human psyche: what possesses us, drives us, and how love, passion, and hope for the future can drive us to insanity.

If you want, you can read an excerpt on Goodreadson the authors website or on Amazon.
