Blackwood's Institute for Girls 1827 describes an institution where one hundred new-born girls were placed, as part of an eighteen year long experiment aiming to discover, and eventually alter, the female psyche. The committee that created the institution claimed that there was a necessity for such an experiment since in 1827, it was believed that the female brain was vulnerable and damaged. The people in charge suggested the only way to eradicate the damaged psyche, was to ensure that the women lived in complete isolation.
The story tells of the lives of two girls, Alice and Sophia. It describes their relationship with each other, with the superintendents and with some of the other girls. Their lives are very oppressed and the girls cope with the oppression in different ways, defined by their personalities.
A very interesting, captivating story which will have the reader turning pages and unable to put the book down.

My name is Annefleur Bruin, I'm twenty years old and I'm studying biomedical sciences at the University of Maastricht. I've lived abroad most of my life with my family which gave me the opportunity of seeing incredible places, which I hope to continue doing. I love travelling and writing, both literature and music. I'm newer to writing books than music but this is the third book I've written and the first that I'm publishing. I love being with my friends and family, walking with my dog, playing music and getting completely taken over by the characters and their journeys in my stories. I hope you enjoy my book!
