Cara is a troubled young girl who is left at Calm Springs by her father. She is then in the care of Alex, a caring intern only a few years older than she is. Alex fights his feelings of attraction to Cara and strives to provide psychological analysis to help her. She doesn’t make it easy and brings his own deeply buried trauma to the surface, forcing him to come to terms, with not only Cara’s problems, but his own.
Elsa Harrow’s novel is about two damaged people meeting as doctor and patient and gives an insight into the world in an mental health institution.
This is quite fast-paced, and the chemistry between Cara and Alex is well written, but it is a little unbelievable for such an unprofessional relationship to develop in such an environment. However, it’s still an enjoyable read.
I would like to thank the Author/the Publishers/NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for a fair and honest review @brwpublisher
