On the outskirts of Nuneaton stands Hatter's Hall, a dark forbidding place - home to the mentally insane. One rainy, dismal day in 1857, Maria Mundy arrives at Hatter's Hall, not as an inmate but as a worker. Here, she is ordered to care for Isabelle Montgomery, the daughter of an influential land-owner.

Itâ??s going to take courage, determination, and resolve â?? but freedom is always worth fighting for.
