About this title


An intensely moving, frequently shocking account of a child's life in an adult mental hospital.

About the Author:

Only for a Fortnight is Sue Read's own account of her life. Written with directness and great force, it vividly portrays her childhood; her taciturn father; her loving but puzzled mother; her horrifying years in the mental hospital; her gradual, but eventually total, release from institutional life; her marriage; the births of two children; and the traumatic effect that the death of her second child had on her. It was the aftermath of this tragedy that Sue Read wrote this powerful book, to which, more recently, she has added a moving and uplifting epilogue.
