About this title

Synopsis:

Rosalind Kemp is the youngest in a family of sisters. She lives a comfortable life in a small town in Ontario. Ros is active, loving, and artistic. And, she has second sight.

It is a part of her nature with which she has trouble coming to terms: sometimes it is nothing more than a pleasant parlor trick, like knowing that King Edward will abdicate; sometimes it is a curse that makes her feel freakish; and sometimes it is just plain terrifying. Ros tries everything she can to suppress the gift, and subsequently herself, but nothing works. If she is going to live her life fully, she will have to come to terms with every part of her being, just as everyone must.

This brilliant novel is Julie Johnston at her very best: it is funny, frightening, and painfully insightful.

About the Author:

Julie Johnston received the Governor General’s Award for her first two books, Hero of Lesser Causes and Adam and Eve and Pinch-Me.
