A Hypnotic Psychological Mystery That Unmasks the Secret Desires of a Young Woman with a Mystical Gift
With nods to Shirley Jackson and Daphne du Maurier, Karen Brown's The Clairvoyants spins an eerie and rare old-fashioned story, one that thrums with the longings of imperfect people, living and dead, who want to be seen and loved.
As a child growing up at her family's property by sea, Martha Mary endured her parents' divorce, survived a tragedy that robbed her and her younger sister of their innocence, and---she saw ghosts. As a young adult, she hopes to distance herself from that painful past and from her secret ability. She escapes to a gorgeous inland college town to study photography. There, she impresses fellow students with her images of abandoned landscapes, falls into her first passionate love affair, and is only mildly interested in the flyers around town seeking information about a young woman who's disappeared---until one Indian summer afternoon when the missing woman appears beneath Martha's apartment window, wearing a down coat, her hair flecked with ice.
Will Martha's gifts leave her terrifyingly alone?
