She retreats from the outside world into a world of delusion and the private terrors of a New York City Psychiatric Hospital.How do we know who we really are? How do we find our true selves under the heavy burden of family and our pasts? In an unpredictable portrait of mental illness, HYSTERA penetrates to the pulsing heart of the questions.WINNER: GLOBAL E-BOOK AWARDS, USA BOOK AWARDS IN FICTIONFINALIST: INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARDS, INDIE EXCELLENCE AWARDS
