characters The Illness Lesson Summary The Illness Lesson 108 Ets emerge and Caroline must confront the all male all knowing authorities around her the ones who insist the voices of the sufferers are unreliable In order to save herself Caroline may have to destroy everything she's ever knownWritten in intensely vivid prose and brimming with psychological insight The Illness Lesson is a powerful exploration of women's bodies women's minds and the time honored tradition of doubting both. Caroline lives with her father Samuel a writer and educator whose career and reputation have been sullied by a younger man that Samuel mentored many years ago But Samuel is determined to revive his career by starting a school for girls Girls can think Girls can learn They needn t be limited to the traditional lessons that make young ladies into gracious hostesses They can rise in this world as long as he is there to guide them I read this book free and early thanks to Doubleday and Net Galley It s for sale nowAs the story opens just a few ladies are signed up for the boarding school that will be run by Samuel and Caroline from their home A former protegee David comes to join them also and will teach the sciences Running errands in town however Caroline and David run into Eliza the daughter of the man that ruined Samuel s career Her father is now deceased Eliza wants to attend the school In a moment of mischievous rebellion that she will come to regret Caroline accepts her At the outset The Illness Lesson seems to be feminist fiction and as school begins and I see Samuel mansplaining to his female charges about the things that women can and cannot do should learn to do should want to do I lean in ready for a rapier sharp tale in which I hope the father and teacher that believes himself to be an educational gift to womankind will learn a powerful lesson Alas not so much Before the halfway mark is reached the story has wandered in various directions and has lost its cohesion and focus I check my notes and change the genre for it over and over again feminist fiction becomes historical fiction becomes romance becomes magical realism becomes horror and what the heck is this author trying to achieve If the plan is to keep the reader guessing I can honestly say that I am genuinely surprised in the second half by what Caroline finds in the woods However I am not a fan of surprise elements that fragment the plot It almost feels as if it was written by a half dozen writers drunkenly passing a story around late at night Okay now YOU write a chapter Surprise me I might not have been so disappointed if I hadn t expected such great things The premise is a wonderful one Beams could have done so much with it and I can t figure out why she didn t Perhaps if you read it you ll come away with a charitable viewpoint My advice however is to get it free or cheap or else give it a miss entirely
