A beautifully wrought and sharply detailed story of the intertwining lives of two women: Duse, a strong-willed psychic and Isadora, her daughter, who struggles to find her own identity. A masterful evocation of the complex network of expectation, love, rebellion and need that is at the core of every mother-daughter relationship.
"An extraordinary novel, complex and original, refreshingly offbeat and compelling." -- Publisher's Weekly (Starred Review)
"Strong and memorable characters." -- The Los Angeles Times
