The Woman They Could Not Silence

1860: As the clash between the states rolls slowly to a boil, Elizabeth Packard, housewife and mother of six, is facing her own battle. The enemy sits across the table and sleeps in the next room. Her husband of twenty-one years is plotting against her because he feels increasingly threatenedโ€•by Elizabeth’s intellect, independence, and unwillingness to stifle her own thoughts. So he makes a plan to put his wife back in her place. One summer morning, he has her committed to an insane asylum.

Elizabeth’s refusal to be silenced and her ceaseless quest for justice not only challenged the medical science of the day, and led to a giant leap forward in human rights, it also showcased the most salutary lesson: sometimes, the greatest heroes we have are those inside ourselves.

Omg, I have no words to describe this book, what an amazing and beautifully writen story. Brutal, shocking and empowering, The Woman They Could Not Silence is a story that will stay with me for a long time. I absolutely loved Elizabethโ€™s story.

This is my first book from Kate Moore Author and it wonโ€™t be my last.

Thank you NetGalley and Blackstone Publishing for this ALC.

  1. I loved this story! The psychiatric care of the time was appalling. I enjoyed that she took steps forward to achieve change in psych care as well. Awesome review
