The Purple Nightgown by A.D. Lawerence



When Health Is Corrupted by Wealth
Step into True Colors -- a new series of Historical Stories of Romance and 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?


"Sometimes you just have to stand still and face what comes head on. And trust that God will guide you." Stand still.

This is so very true. You can't keep running away because eventually it will catch up with you. Secrets will come out.
This book is the weirdest one yet.
They just keep getting darker and darker with each book in this series. That's OK because this is my favorite series by far. I have learned so many new things from this awesome series.
I felt sorry for Stella. I can relate to her through her many migraines and all. I still admired her courage through her endurance and trials..
Yes, I didn't care for Dr. Hazzard and I'll leave it at that.
There are some surprises in this story that I never saw coming and those are what I like in a book.
This story will keep you riveted to your seat to see what happens next.
Trust me it didn't disappoint.
I recommend this to those are loving this series or for new readers that are sure enjoy this series.
My thanks to Barbour publishing for a copy of this book. I was NOT required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.
