Being psychic isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
It’s 1888, and the sordid Bowery District of New York City is a lonely and dangerous
place for any young woman to live- especially one who can see ghosts. An
impoverished Irish seamstress, Maggie O'Connor wishes that the otherworldly entities would
leave her alone to concentrate on her worldly ambitions: putting food on the table
and buying her own dress shop one day, but the quirky ghosts have other plans. They
want Maggie to locate her departed sister’s lost infant and embrace her gift as a seer.
Maggie is a reluctant student. She knows that sharing her gift could result in being
labeled as a witch, just like the persecuted female seers in her ancestral line.
Things look up when the handsome son of Maggie’s employer falls for her. Gershom
understands that having psychic gifts does not necessarily make a woman crazy. If
only the local judge agreed. When Maggie ends up at the New York City Lunatic
Asylum on Blackwell’s Island, she must find a way to escape and return to Gershom’s
loving arms. But can they locate her sister’s lost infant?
Miracles occur with the help of ghostly entities and Andrew Carnegie, one of
America’s richest men.
