She's only a number now.

When Charlotte Smith's wealthy parents commit her beloved sister Phoebe to the infamous Goldengrove Asylum, Charlotte knows there's more to the story than madness. She risks everything and follows her sister inside, surrendering her real identity as a privileged young lady of San Francisco society to become a nameless inmate, Woman 99.

The longer she stays, the more she realizes that many of the women of Goldengrove aren't insane, merely inconvenient ― and that her search for the truth threatens to dig up secrets that some very powerful people would do anything to keep.

 

A historical thriller rich in detail, deception, and revelation, Woman 99 honors the fierce women of the past, born into a world that denied them power but underestimated their strength.

Praise

 

"Woman Ninety Nine is a gorgeous ode to the power of female courage. A resourceful Gilded Age heiress feigns madness and inveigles herself into an insane asylum, determined at all costs to rescue her fragile, unjustly committed sister, only to realize the horrors of the madhouse may keep them both prisoner forever. But when alliances are forged among the asylum women, many of whom are jailed because they are inconvenient rather than insane, all things become possible--even escape. Greer Macallister pens a nail-biter that makes you want to stand up and cheer."

— Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of The Alice Network

"A gripping story that exposes the Gilded Age's tarnished veneer, when women who didn't acquiesce to the standards of the day were locked away. Powerful and electrifying, Macallister is at the top of her game."

— Fiona Davis, bestselling author of The Masterpiece and The Address

"Greer Macallister's characters never fail to leap off the page into your very soul; you can't help loving them, rooting for them, agonizing with them over the choices they must make. Woman Ninety Nine is richly and expertly woven with chilling historical details – you won't soon forget what it was like to be behind the locked doors of Goldengrove Asylum on a mission to save someone you love."

—Susan Meissner, bestselling author of As Bright as Heaven

"Macallister's mastery of historical fiction is on full display in WOMAN NINETY NINE. Her incisive voice brings a dark chapter of our past to life with unsettling contemporary resonance."

—Julia Whelan, award-winning audiobook narrator and author of My Oxford Year
