This was a truly entertaining book. I have always been interested in the paranormal so this was very well done. Although fictional, this story was inspired by true-life 1890’s Italian Medium, Eusapia Palladino. That made it more real for me. The historical time period was brought to life by the vivid descriptions of each country they were in . It was like I was in those scenes looking in. It was a hard story and I so wanted the main character to be happy at the end. To have her man and happy life, but it was not to be….just like life is for us today. Sometimes our dreams to not work out. Great book! 5 stars for me.
