I have enjoyed everything Barbara Mertz, aka Elizabeth Peters, and aka Barbara Michaels has written. My favorite books are the "Amelia Peabody" mysteries she writes under the pseudonym Elizabeth Peters. This is one of her earlier books. Although not quite as good as her later ones, it is still a quick, pleasant and fun read. Here's an excerpt from the back cover:

A STRANGE AND DANGEROUS GIFT...
With her silver-gilt curls and sea-green eyes, Marianne Ransom ws 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 innitially 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 poweres, 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 mcuh can be deadly...
