Summary
This is the story of the life of Mary Chapman, foundress of the 'Bethel Hospital for Lunatics in Norwich'. Mary had little education beyond being able to read and write, no vote and no right to own property. As the kind and pious, and unmarried, daughter, Mary becomes a carer to those of her kindred affected by mental torment. She seems destined for a lonely life and resigns herself to doing her duty. When she meets and falls for Reverend Samuel Chapman, together they plan to create a sanctuary for the 'poor lunatics' of Norwich. Following Samuel's death, and inspired by her enduring love for her beloved husband, Mary has to fight to fulfil her promise to Samuel to build the place they had envisioned
