Ambrose is a soldier from the civil war and dealing with his issues and what calms him down is the color blue.
Iris is the wife of a plantation owner sent to the asylum because she tried to break away from her husband , and she was more concerned about the welfare of the Negro's on the land.
Wendall is the son of Doctor there and he has some issues and he might be crazy too. He is also real mature for his age, and helps the lovers.
Dr. Cowell is in charge of the Asylum , and he gets challenged by Iris and that she isn't crazy.
For such a small book this book tackled issues of craziness, slavery, and love. I was impressed by the depth that all this was tackled and in respectful manner. This book was also during the time of the civil war , then things were already in chaos. I am still thinking about Blue things, and the love that was found between the pages of Iris and Ambrose.
Best Line: I know the fellow you play chess with likes to think of blue things to calm himself. Soul Light is blue.
Thanks to HMH for the book and this is my Honest Review , and this book is already out.
