About this title


The year is 1888. Life takes an abrupt turn for sixteen year old Scottish farm worker Jeannie Guthrie when she defends herself against the advances of her ne'er-do-well cousin George. Convinced that she has fatally wounded her cousin, Jeannie flees in panic to London. There she is befriended by the free-spirited Alexandra David, and introduced to Madame Helena Blavatsky's famous salon. In that eccentric household Jeannie comes to realize that she possesses a dangerous and unwished-for "wild talent". Drawn reluctantly into the world of the occult, and seemingly haunted by George's vengeful ghost, Jeannie must learn to control her mysterious power in order to survive.

We follow Jeannie and Alexandra as they travel from the late Victorian world of spiritualists and theosophists to the fin de siècle Paris of artists, anarchists and esoteric cults; and finally to the perilous country of the Beyond.

Book Description:

If you enjoy well-written historical fiction, with particular reference to spiritualism, this is a book for you. Alexandra David and Madame Blavatsky were actual people, who led fascinating lives. -- Charlotte's Library
