The Water Grove Sanitarium has stood in the shadows of Avery for forty years. It has stood a testament of increment weather and the test of time. For many years, it was considered an outstanding psychiatric hospital devoted to the improvement of the human body. What was never known was the amount of discarded human flesh that would be funneled out through the many hidden passageways and dark tunnels that ran from the rear of the building. Despite the many wild speculations, it has survived solely on deceit and secrecy.

A Water Grove Journal” is about a journal that was found buried with its corners seared and blackened, in the remains of the complex as police and fire officials combed the interior husk and surrounding gardens in a desperate search for a reason or suspect. This is the only account ever found, and to this day, it remains a mystery to the town of Avery as to why the sanitarium disappeared almost overnight, despite the obvious fact that was pointed out, what the journal contained was only the lead up to its ultimate demise. What happened that night would, and forever, continues to mystify the country.

This book follows Sebastian Green who has been institutionalized and who must accept his short falls whilst learning to adapt to his new surroundings with a constructive and open embrace. The other side of this story is about Laura Bell, who despite having all the freedom she could want, realizes that the one she craves is a clear understanding of who she really is and what she really wants.

The life inside an institution is not as glorified as made out to be. What people do not understand, or rarely see, is that the worst part of this particular type of experience is not the frightening people around them, but more the internal struggles that are faced. Whether they are psychological or physical, the hardest part was being generally so sedated that one is really a prisoner within one’s own mind. That in turn, lead to boredom and loneliness. In today’s day and age, a person who suffers from a psychological disease is so overlooked at what they are capable of. Despite the good intentions and well caring hands, people seem to forget that most of these people have accomplished so much in their short lives but are stuffed in a room so medicated, they cannot talk, they cannot think, they can only wait.

Impeccably researched, grippingly told, filled with eleventh-hour drama, “A Water Grove Journal” is a one-of-a-kind novella that revolves around the theme of acceptance. This book ultimately shows an ironic injustice that people must face if they are to succeed in life. It is a lesson that will forever plague people as a species.
