Summary: When Dr. Brennan first took on the case of “Jane Doe”, she was emotionless and barely responsive, concealed behind hair that served as a more effective barrier than a brick wall. A year went by with no progress, but one day, the woman slipped and revealed the secret that resided in the depths of her unconscious mind. And with the secret came Meredith, Regan, Lily, Sapphire, Sadie, Charlie, The Scary Lady, The Doctor, Harrison, and Ellie. All of them were components of Loretta, a host personality that had split her mind into these people to cope with childhood traumas that she was incapable of dealing with. But as Dr. Brennan digs deeper into the memories of this woman’s tortured childhood, he finds that she has carried with her recollections of a magical world.
In this story, discoveries are made of why the magical world has caused Loretta to become tormented, what the Wizarding World has done to her to cause her to divide in her psychological mind.
