Book One. Delcina's Tears. describes the long painful years of slavery. the total lack of education and the isolation of eighteen years without ever seeing the outside of that reformatory. It describes living, sleeping, eating and working in the same rooms with her mother but neither one knowing their relationship to each other. Her Crime? Being born' At age eighteen she escaped this wretched entombment by leaping from an unbarred second story window. Book Two, Beyond the Walls, follows Georgina through the houses of prostitution, the jails, and the streets of the real Canada of the nineteen fifties. It includes the illicit sexual attentions of the child sexual abuser of her childhood. He became the barrier of her adult attempts to live normally in a world that was anything but normal. Her lack of education. her inability to understand the outside world set her up for failure as a psychiatrist explained it to her later. Book Three. Rehearsals in Madness, takes her to Toronto in hopes of finding a better life away from New Brunswick where it all began.
