Asylum by Lily White

Words are funny things.

Their meaning, the pictures they paint in the minds of those that hear them: they’re not always the same and to me at least, that makes them meaningless.

Take for instance the phrase ‘black widow’. Those words conjure the image of a spider, an eight-legged creature with the red imprint of an hourglass on its abdomen.

However, instead of speaking of an arachnid, of the resident of a spindly and dew-laden web, the people who whisper those words are talking about something much different.

They’re talking about me.

From what I’m told, I’m called the Black Widow because no man I’ve ever loved has survived.

Yet, I have no memory of any of it.

My new home leads me to the definition of another vague and meaningless word.

It’s a place where I’m supposed to seek refuge.

A place of retreat and security.

It’s a place where I’m supposed to be kept safe because I’m sick.

But the definition for this place is wrong and the word becomes meaningless when you’re tucked away and made silent by drugs and pretty white jackets.

My name is Alexandra Sutton and this is the story of what happened when I was imprisoned inside an Asylum.

Alex is called the "Black Widow." Every time she takes the medicine that is prescribed to her she felt that they quickly sucked the life from her veins. She hasn't been convicted of the crimes that they said she committed. At night she has nightmares. Dain comes to see Alex every week and he is her only relative. She doesn't have any friends. Terrie takes her to see the new doctor. Dr. Hutchins comes up with a therapy to help Alex remember. Every time Dain comes to see Alex he brings pictures to show her in hopes that she will remember.

Alexandra Sutton is in Statham a asylum for the criminally insane. Everybody thinks that she is a murderer. She has no memory, she is 21 and she has anterograde Amnesia. Dr. Jeremy Hutchins is the new Doctor at Statham, he took over Statham,he only took the job because of Alex. Dain Sutton is Alex's older brother, he made detective.Joe is a nurse at the asylum, he is very creepy, dopes the women. Terrie is an older nurse, she is very kind, Alex's only friend, she is also forgetful. Ali is another Doctor at Statham, she is very mean. 

This is my first book by Lily White and it most definitely will not be my last. I loved how well the characters were developed and I loved the story line and how well the story was written. I felt a whole bunch of different emotions while reading this story. Lily you are an amazing author.

Lily White is a dark writer who likes to dabble on the taboo side of eroticism. Most of the time she can be found wandering around aimlessly while her mind is stuck in some twisted power play between two characters in her head. You may recognize her in public by the confused expression, random mumbling, and occasional giggle while thinking up a scene. Lily’s favorite things in life are reading, thinking about reading, buying books for reading….and writing. Her other secret pleasure is meeting with her plot editor in public to discuss her books and watching the shocked expressions of the people around her that don’t realize she’s talking about a book. When Lily is not reading, writing, wandering or freaking out innocent bystanders, she’s sleeping.
