"Greer Macallister's characters never fail to leap off the page into your very soul; you can't help loving them, rooting for them, agonizing with them over the choices they must make. WOMAN NINETY-NINE is richly and expertly woven with chilling historical details – you won't soon forget what it was like to be behind the locked doors of Goldengrove Asylum on a mission to save someone you love." - Susan Meissner, bestselling author of AS BRIGHT AS HEAVEN
