The Secret of a 100-Year-Old Woman

The Secret Scripture by Sebastian Barry

Roscommon Mental Hospital is about to be torn down, and the director, Dr. Grene has to figure out what to do with his patients, including Roseanne McNulty. Should he move her to the new facility? Maybe he should find her somewhere on the outside? She doesn’t seem at all crazy, but she’s been living there since she was a teenager; how would she survive in the outside world? What’s more, she is already so old; how much time does she have to live? The only way to decide is for Dr. Grene to delve into Roseanne’s history. At the same time, Roseanne has been secretly writing the story of her life from before her institutionalization.

My complete review of this book is available on my new blog here!

This is a revised version of my review on Curious Book Fans and Dooyoo (under my username TheChocolateLady) which also appeared on {the now defunct} Yahoo! Contributor Network.
