A confidante to many of Britain's Romantics, Mary Lamb stood at the center of a colorful literary circle. But when she killed her mother, Mary spent the rest of her life in and out of madhouses. This narrative taps into creativity and madness, the changing lives of women, and the redemptive power of the written word.
