Marvel at true but forgotten history when patients check into Linda Hazzards Washington state spa in 1912 and soon become victim of her twisted greed.
Heiress Stella Burke is plagued by insincere suitors and nonstop headaches. Exhausting all other medical aides for her migraines, Stella reads Fasting for the Cure of Disease by Linda Hazzard and determines to go to the spa the author runs. Stellas chauffer and long-time friend, Henry Clayton, is reluctant to leave her at the spa. Something doesnt feel right to him, still Stella submits herself into Linda Hazzards care. Stella soon learns the spa has a dark side and Linda a mean streak. But when Stella has had enough, all ways to leave are suddenly blocked. Will Stella become a walking skeleton like many of the other patients or succumb to a worse fate?

"A.D. Lawrence has built a tantalizing debut story around a historical setting that is devious and sinister at its core. I was instantly intrigued by the romantic elements of the story, and believe readers who desire a mystery that couples superbly with a cup of coffee will be pleased with this latest release!"
Jaime Jo Wright, author of The Haunting at Bonaventure Circus and Christy Awardwinning, The House on Foster Hill
"The Purple Nightgown draws us into a web of misplaced trust, tangled missteps, rolling remembrance and regret, and loyalties old and new in a taut telling of true history of greed satisfied by preying on the vulnerabilities of those who suffer. With convincing presentation of medical conditions and relatable characters who grow through their circumstances, author A. D. Lawrence crafts a well-paced story that takes us to a satisfying ending."
Olivia Newport, author of the Tree of Life series
"Truth often is stranger than fiction, but the combination in The Purple Nightgown is positively compelling. From the get-go, I had a hard time putting this story down. Author A.D. Lawrence spins a heartbreaking tale of desperation and, ultimately, hope. This is one story that will stick with you long after youve read the last page."
Michelle Griep, Christy Awardwinning author of Once Upon a Dickens Christmas series
