Only for a Fortnight: My Life in a Locked Ward
Only for a Fortnight is Sue Read's own account of her life. Written with directness and great force, it vividly portrays her childhood; her taciturn father; her loving but puzzled mother; her horrifying years in the mental hospital; her gradual, but eventually total, release from institutional life; her marriage; the births of two children; and the traumatic effect that the death of her second child had on her. It was the aftermath of this tragedy that Sue Read wrote this powerful book, to which, more recently, she has added a moving and uplifting epilogue. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
