Will Edyth prove her sanity before it is too late?
On Blackwells Island, New York, a hospital was built to keep its patients from ever leaving.
With her late parents fortune under her uncles care until her twenty-fifth birthday in the year 1887, Edyth Foster does not feel pressured to marry or to bow to societys demands. She freely indulges in eccentric hobbies like fencing and riding her velocipede in her cycling costume about the city for all to see. Finding a loophole in the will, though, her uncle whisks Edyth off to the womens lunatic asylum just weeks before her birthday. And Edyth fears she will never be found.
At the asylum she meets another inmate, who upon discovering Edyths plight, confesses that she is Nellie Bly, an undercover journalist for The World. Will either woman find a way to leave the terrifying island and reclaim her true self?

"With beautiful description and shiver-worthy scenes, Grace Hitchcock has penned an incredible fiction story based on true history. The Gray Chamber is a fascinating and chilling read. The nightmare was brought to life so vividly that I found myself holding my breath and then cheering on Bane as he never gave up on Edyth. This is a story that will stick with me for a long time. Well done, Ms. Hitchcock. Well done."
