Back cover blurb:




This is the stark tale of an unwanted wife's two-year struggle with madness. After sixteen years of happily married life, Monica Prystel is felled by the realization that her beloved husband, Deem, has become a scheming and heartless philanderer. Ill and stricken with grief she suffers a temporary nervous collapse which is capitalixed upon by Deem. Rather than divorce Monica and lose part of his property and income, he imprisons her in a corrupt mental hospital. The brutal story of the nightmarish two years that followed, in a shocking world of wild, penned-up woman, will haunt and horrify you as nothing you have ever read before.


Condition: Good. Pages a bit yellow, cover just about fine with most of the original gloss still present.
