The Sanatorium by Sarah Pearse
REESE'S BOOK CLUB PICK "An eerie, atmospheric novel that had me completely on the edge of my seat." --Reese Witherspoon You won't want to leave. . . until you can't. Half-hidden by forest and overshadowed by threatening peaks, Le Sommet has always been a sinister place. Long plagued by troubling rumors, the former abandoned sanatorium has since been renovated into a five-star minimalist hotel. An imposing, isolated getaway spot high up in the Swiss Alps is the last place Elin Warner wants to be. But Elin's taken time off from her job as a detective, so when her estranged brother, Isaac, and his fiancée, Laure, invite her to celebrate their engagement at the hotel, Elin really has no reason not to accept. Arriving in the midst of a threatening storm, Elin immediately feels on edge--there's something about the hotel that makes her nervous. And when they wake the following morning to discover Laure is missing, Elin must trust her instincts if they hope to find her. With the storm closing off all access to the hotel, the longer Laure stays missing, the more the remaining guests start to panic. Elin is under pressure to find Laure, but no one has realized yet that another woman has gone missing. And she's the only one who could have warned them just how much danger they are all in. . .

In 1945, the world is at war. Seventeen year-old Francie, a spirited farm girl with a big heart is waging her own war when she arrives at a tuberculosis sanatorium, carrying a suitcase of hope. She's confined to a ward with seven other girls struggling with lonely nighttime pillow talks, bedpans and raging hormones. The clock is ticking against finding a cure. The melting pot of charming characters include Margaret, a patient, who is hiding a dark family secret and bent on making Francie's life miserable. When a mean prank leaves Francie in a deserted tunnel leading to the morgue, life at the sanatorium takes an unexpected turn. Her earthly and heavenly journeys culminate in a surprise ending that is both beautiful and touching. This story is inspired by actual events.
Arequipa Sanatorium by Lynn Downey
As San Francisco recovered from the devastating earthquake and fire of 1906, dust and ash filled the city’s stuffy factories, stores, and classrooms. Dr. Philip King Brown noticed rising tuberculosis rates among the women who worked there, and he knew there were few places where they could get affordable treatment. In 1911, with the help of wealthy society women and his wife, Helen, a protégé of philanthropist Phoebe Apperson Hearst, Brown opened the Arequipa Sanatorium in Marin County. Together, Brown and his all-female staff gave new life to hundreds of working-class women suffering from tuberculosis in early-twentieth-century California. Until streptomycin was discovered in the 1940s, tubercular patients had few treatment options other than to take a rest cure at a sanatorium and endure its painful medical interventions. For the working class and minorities, especially women, the options were even fewer. Unlike most other medical facilities of the time, Arequipa treated primarily working-class women and provided the same treatment to all, including Asian American and African American women, despite the virulent racism of the time. Author Lynn Downey’s own grandmother was given a terminal tuberculosis diagnosis in 1927, but after treatment at Arequipa, she lived to be 102 years old. Arequipa gave female doctors a place to practice, female nurses and social workers a place to train, and white society women a noble philanthropic mission. Although Arequipa was founded by a male doctor and later administered by his son, the sanatorium’s mission was truly about the women who worked and recovered there, and it was they who kept it going. Based on sanatorium records Downey herself helped to preserve and interviews she conducted with former patients and others associated with Arequipa, Downey tells a vivid story of the sanatorium and its cure that Brown and his talented team of Progressive women made available and possible for hundreds of working-class patients.
Sanatorium Songs by Marc Di Saverio
Iterative, inventive, and frenetic, the poems in Marc di Saverio's Sanatorium Songs bridge the rift between what's seen and what's experienced by the mentally ill. It's with altruism and joy that di Saverio's work transforms the rules of civic engagement while he probes manifold states of consciousness. At times harrowing, but always human, Sanatorium Songs is a fully realized poetic debut.
