It''s the summer of 1889, and Amelia van den Broek is new to Baltimore. But her gaiety is interrupted by disturbing, dreamlike visions that offer glimpses of the future. When one of her darkest visions comes to pass, Amelia''s world is thrown into chaos.
Annotation:
Setting a paranormal romance in Victorian Baltimore, author Saundra Mitchell has created a rich world that combines staid balls and dresses with unpredictable and exciting supernatural events. Sixteen-year-old Amelia van den Broek, a newly arrived Maine native in search of a husband, finds herself swept up into the social whirl of 1889. Enjoying society, dressing up, and gossiping with her cousin Zora, Amelia begins experiencing waking dreams at sunset, Vespers. They turn out to be predictions of future events, and as word spreads of what Amelia can do, everyone wants to know what their future has in store. At the same time, she secretly falls for Nathanial, an artist who is a deeply inappropriate romantic choice. But is Nathanial more than he seems? However, when Amelia's visions grow disturbing, and terrible things happen, people start to question her intentions.

Praise
