I also enjoyed the black and white pictures of today, as they related to the time period of the book. Thank you for taking the time to write this book, I've often wondered what happened to the patients I cared for being a ward of the state. I also remember reading "sterilized" on the charts, and thought how barbaric it was. Most of the patients walked in a circle in the home, and could not carry on any kind of a coherent conversation. But the scars on their bodies told a different story.
Your book brought back alot of old memories to me, I was just 16 then.
Once I saw the article in the newspaper, I really felt I had to order it, and was not disapointed in the least. I could'nt put the book down. There are so many people that Wilma knew there, and to think that she ended up there because she was an alcoholic.
