The Purple Nightgown (True Colors) by A.D. Lawrence


Step into True Colors -- a series of Historical Stories of Romance and True American Crime
Marvel at true but forgotten history when patients check into Linda Hazzard’s Washington state spa in 1912 and soon become victim of her twisted greed.
Heiress Stella Burke is plagued by insincere suitors and nonstop headaches. Exhausting all other medical aides for her migraines, Stella reads Fasting for the Cure of Disease by Linda Hazzard and determines to go to the spa the author runs. Stella’s chauffer and long-time friend, Henry Clayton, is reluctant to leave her at the spa. Something doesn’t feel right to him, still Stella submits herself into Linda Hazzard’s care. Stella soon learns the spa has a dark side and Linda a mean streak. But when Stella has had enough, all ways to leave are suddenly blocked. Will Stella become a walking skeleton like many of the other patients or succumb to a worse fate?

My Review

This story will have you quickly page turning for answers, how could this possibly happen and then was justice really served?

This is the story of a young, wealthy, young woman, struggling to find her place, and about to inherit her fortune. Stella Burke does have a problem of debilitating headaches.

Her childhood friend and chauffeur is there for her, but can she see the real him?

Stella desperately wants help for her headaches and decides to go to the Hazzard Clinic. Now this is part of the true crime series, and you will soon find your heart in your throat. We are there at the clinic, or known as the Starvation Clinic, run by Linda Hazzard, a quack, and as you are reading, a very scary evil woman.

As we meet the people currently at the clinic you will soon wonder if any will leave alive.

You really need to read this to see how everything turns out, but I for one did not feel justice was served! You also can judge!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review.
