Repossessing Ernestine by Marsha Hunt
In the 1920s in Memphis, Tennessee, Ernestine Hunt seemed to have a bright future. Yet she was to spend over 50 years in mental institutions before her granddaughter Marsha Hunt discovered she was still alive. In an effort to find answers to the mysteries of her grandmother's past and to restore dignity to her remaining years, Marsha became caught up in her father's family. Travelling to the Deep South, visiting her grandfather's home and friends, battling for hospital and legal records, she turned over secrets and inconsistencies that others might have prefered to remain hidden.
