Bly addressed social issues that desperately needed attention at the turn of the 20th century; issues that affected not only women but all minorities marginalized by society. Bly reported the news from the perspective of a woman and, as such, helped to elevate the role of women in American society. Bly writes from the heart and we feel intensely the sadness and hopelessness she feels for the inhabitants of the institution who will likely be held captive for the rest of their lives.

Story still gripping after 100+ years.
Remains an excellent reporting of conditions of the time. Audio Performance more than ably done.

A chilling tale
If you could sum up Ten Days in a Mad-House in three words, what would they be?
Dawn Harvey takes us on a tour of the Mad House that will make you believe that you are hearing the story from Nellie Bly, herself. Excellent read!
Have you listened to any of Dawn Harvey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Dawn Harvey is a name I associate with quality audiobooks. She always provides the listener an enjoyable experience.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This book made me feel sad that at one time, a visit to the Mad House was a strong possibility for many.
