Summary

Rowan knows he is strange.

But dangerous? He didn't scare his sister.

In his right mind, he wouldn't hurt a fly.

But there's a place he can go where they say they can fix his mind….

As the second World War begins, Rowan is diagnosed as schizophrenic and sent away to a hospital where the latest treatments are available. But the treatments are experimental still-and nobody predicts the effect they will have on Rowan.
