Mary appears naked, covered in her own faeces, and Eddie cleans her. When Eddie has to go away for three weeks, Mary pines for him and refuses to eat again. Three years later, Angie, a disturbed rich girl of 20, comes to the house, where Mary is now well enough to help her.

She had been given her wish to regress and start again, in fact encouraged to go mad like Francis Gillet was. I attended a performance of the David Edgar play by Glasgow University with her which was very moving.
After leaving Kingsley Hall she helped other people with mental problems as well as writing her book.
