Spotlight and Giveaway: "Ever Alice" by H.J. Ramsay

About the book:
Have you ever wondered what happens to some of the most classic literary characters long after you turn the final page? Did Jo March become a successful author while raising her children? Did Scarlett O’Hara find promise in a tomorrow and move on from her broken heart? And in Alice in Wonderland, does Alice ever adjust to life back home, and are the charming creatures of Wonderland still safe from the Queen of Hearts? With a new retelling of Carroll’s most popular work of fiction, it’s time for readers to fall down the rabbit hole again to find out.

In Ever Alice by H.J. Ramsay, the now 15-year-old hypnotizing heroine has been classified as “mad” and resides in an asylum, desperate to prove to her family and doctors what she saw was real. Back in Wonderland, the Queen of Hearts shows no mercy as she beheads all her closest companions, frantically trying to find the traitor out to kill her before time runs out. The White Rabbit tracks down and saves Alice just in time from a dangerous procedure in order to bring her back to kill the Queen. But with scandals, love, and intrigue following her to Wonderland, Alice could end up in more danger than she thought, and she might not prove to be the hero everyone thought she was.

Ramsay stays true to Carroll’s original work, with language, humor and callbacks to 19th-century Europe, all the while creating a Wonderland that’s uniquely her own. A surprise revelation about Wonderland will allow readers to peek behind the curtain of mental health treatment: exposing how mental illness was treated in the Reconstruction era, how far modern psychiatry has come in treating the mind over the past 150 years, and why anyone has the ability to go truly "mad."
