Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Julia Severn is a student at an elite institute for psychics. Her mentor, the legendary Madame Ackermann, afflicted by jealousy, subjects Julia to the humiliation of reliving her mother's suicide when Julia was an infant. As the two lock horns, and Julia gains power, Madame Ackermann launches a desperate psychic attack that leaves Julia the victim of a crippling ailment. But others have noted Julia's emerging gifts, and soon she's recruited to track down an elusive missing person who might have a connection to her mother. As Julia sifts through ghosts and astral clues, everything she thought she knew of her mother is called into question, and she discovers that her ability to know the minds of others goes far deeper than she ever imagined.

Review:

"Julia Severn is an initiate at a psychic institute in New Hampshire who comes under the tutelage of a medium named Madame Ackermann. But Julia — who is searching for answers about her deceased mother — is forced to leave the institute following a dispute with Ackermann in which Julia suffered a crippling psychic attack. Eventually, Julia finds her way to a facility in Vienna that deals with psychic wounds. Along the way, she further develops her psychic powers while meeting individuals connected to either Ackermann or her deceased mother. Xe Sands turns in a stellar performance in this audio edition of Julavits's latest, providing narration that is secretive and seductive. For the novel's many female characters, Sands offers up a host of spot-on voices and accents. The result is intriguing, whimsical, often funny, and thoroughly enjoyable. A Doubleday hardcover."

Synopsis:

A wildly imaginative and emotionally intense novel about mothers and daughters.
