Forthcoming Novel

During the American Civil War, Anna Dickinson is the country's most famous female orator — both despised and beloved for her feminist and abolitionist views. When she's committed to an insane asylum against her will, she must learn to subdue her bold, outspoken nature and convince the doctor in charge to write ’sane’ on her discharge papers. But how will she persuade him to release her, when her radical views have already convinced him she’s insane?​


COMMITTED is Anna's story.
