With her silver-gilt curls and sea-green eyes, Marianne Ransom was a striking beauty, a spirited orphan surviving the backstreets of Victorian London. But there was something more that set her apart... She possessed the gift of second sight, a power that initially awakened in her when a twist of fate brought her to the opulent home of a wealthy Duchess. It was there that the ghostly presence of her own father, a man renowned for his psychic powers, called to her from beyond. But soon her magnificent surroundings--and her own powerful abilities--become a perilous trap, as Marianne discovers that knowing too much can be deadly...

This is a very fine read. It has romance, history, the occult, intrigue... The book will start its journey to Australia next week.

I thought it would be more wizardly but it's actually a gothic-style romance. Not a bad read though.

Received this book from catsalive today.

Many, many thanks. Barbara Michaels is one of my favourite authors in disguise and I am looking forward to reading this book which had escaped my vigilant searching for her books

Oh, dear!!!!!

Barbara Michaels (Barbara Mertz AKA Elizabeth Peters) has certainly become a better writer than she was when this small offering was written. It is a bodice ripper of the most unexciting kind - and the heroine actually DID have her bodice ripped at one juncture of the narrative (to quote Tom Lehrer).

I read the first half, skimmed the rest and read the last few pages. It was first published in 1980 and was probably one of Barbara Mertz's very early books.

Not a book which I would recommend even though she is my favourite author when she writes as Elizabeth Peters - excepting for a few of (once again) her early books. A pity !
