“Set in Ireland, we follow the tale of a woman in a mental hospital who is to be evaluated by the doctor there to determine if she is fit to be released. Dr. Grene is unclear about Roseannes history and the cause for her admittance to the institution. Given that she is 100 years old and had lived there most of her life, he investigates her background. In the meantime Roseanne is writing down her lifes story on slips of paper and hiding them under a loose floor board. Bit by bit the story unfolds of a young girl, a violent Ireland, a determined priest, family secrets, betrayal, and more. This was a fascinating story although the ending may have been a bit to neat.
