Publisher's Summary

Barbara was 12 when she was admitted to the psychiatric hospital Aston Hall in 1971. From a troubled home, she'd hoped she would find sanctuary there. But during her stay, Barbara was systematically drugged and abused by its head physician, Dr Kenneth Milner.
Somehow, eventually, she started to campaign for answers. This is a shocking account of how vulnerable children were preyed upon by the doctor entrusted with their care.

Gut wrenching, incredibly sad

What made the experience of listening to The Hospital the most enjoyable?

I can't say anything was enjoyable about the story, it was one of the most horrific stories I have heard, but one that must be told and known about.

Any additional comments?

Barbara, thank you for sharing your terrifying and maddening story. I hope that the success of your book continues to bring you more healing and that it may allow for others to step forward who have also been so brutally abused; to give their own terror a voice.

Heartbreaking

This story is utterly heartbreaking.
I could not fault the way it was written or the narration at all.
This book kept me invested the whole way through and left me feeling so sad and frustrated at what Barbara went through.
Highly recommend!

wow... what strength

I cried for you, I got angry at the abuse and also at all the so called adults that came into your life and did nothing. My heart brakes for you.
Hope the legal battle works out and more answers come forth. Hope Christine is doing OK if you find out news of her.
take care ..
