From the Publisher

Editorial Reviews


'…an intimate page-turner that is full of heart. This brave novel explores a little-known and horrifying footnote of the Holocaust, as well as longtime patriarchal tendencies to use women's mental health against them, especially as a means of gaining power and control. Engrossing and devastating, Where Madness Lies reminds us of how much is at stake today, as democracy is threatened and fascism looms large.' -- Heidi Pitlor, Author of The Daylight Marriage and Impersonation

'Absorbing and intelligent, Where Madness Lies is a brave and uplifting reflection on an ever-sensitive subject. With deftly-rendered characters, True illustrates just how strong the connections are between past and present.' -- Maryanne O’Hara, Author of Cascade

'Sylvia True's novel is a voyage into the madness of madness, tracing the Nazis' seduction of Germany into the moral catastrophe of racial hygiene. The narrative is written in the voices of two women you can't stop caring about. True tells a story of urgent and deeply consequential familial love across three generations.' -- Alex Rosenberg, Author of The Girl from Krakow

About the Author

Sylvia True, author of the popular novel The Wednesday Group, was born in Manchester, England to parents who were refugees from Germany. She moved to the US at the age of five, and now lives in Massachusetts with her husband and dogs where she teaches high school chemistry.

5.0 out of 5 stars HAD TO REVIEW!!!
By Joseph on February 24, 2021
This is one of those books that must be read. It’s not a light read by any means, but it’s an important one. Topics of mental illness, eugenics and the Nazis are all woven into this novel. Times have changed, and we certainly don’t treat the mentally ill the way the Nazis did, but there is still stigma around mental illness, and this book serves as a cautionary tale – don’t try to hide or push away the past. Repressed trauma comes back to haunt the family line. I was impressed at the depth of the characters and themes.
