The Purple Nightgown


Marvel at true but forgotten history when patients check into Linda Hazzard’s 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. Stella’s chauffer and long-time friend, Henry Clayton, is reluctant to leave her at the spa. Something doesn’t feel right to him, still Stella submits herself into Linda Hazzard’s 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?

This is the 11th book of True Colors Series. I'm always shocked when reading one of the stories in this series and the evil in the world regardless of what time you live in. The Purple Nightgown is such a book. I've tried to lose weight just to fit in my clothes but never ever thought about starving myself because of a physical malady. But Stella is desperate to do anything to control her debilitating headaches. She falls into the lies written by Linda Hazzard. This is indeed a page turner. A nail biter for sure as you turn page after page to see just what is happenings at the spa that Linda, her husband and son own and manage. Creepy things are happening. Can she leave when she wants to? What will Henry, her chauffer and friend, do to find out about her when communication is not allowed.

          READ THE BOOK!!!
