She suppresses her clairvoyance for years, leading a normal life that includes the bloom of first love. Then, in 1941, the young woman is jolted by a startling premonition.Believing its her patriotic duty, Helen agrees to hold séances for the grieving families of dead servicemen. Increasingly fascinated with the world beyond the grave, Helen develops an urgent desire to learn why spirits come to her. At the same time, she faces sharp anxieties in the world of the living. Will her feisty German grandmother be sent to an internment camp for enemy aliens? Can her deepening romance with Billy Mackey survive his disapproval of the gift that makes her different from other people? And why is the U. S. Army suddenly so interested in her séances? Searching for her true place in two worlds, Helen struggles not only with the uncertainties of life and love during wartime, but also with the unique problem of how to heed the insistent voices of the dead.
