Description

Recently returned from the experience of a lifetime in fin de siecle Vienna, where she met and tragically lost the first great love of her life, Eleanor Burden has no choice but to settle into her expected place in society, marry the man she is supposed to marry, and wait for life to come to her. As the twentieth century approaches, hers is a story not unlike that of the other young women she grew up with in 1890s Boston--a privileged upbringing punctuated by a period of youthful adventure and the inevitable acknowledgment of real life--except for one small difference: Eleanor possesses an unshakable belief that she can foresee every major historical event to come during her lifetime. But soon the script of events she has written in her mind--a script described by no less than Sigmund Freud as the invented delusions of a hysteric--begins to unravel. Eleanor Burden, at once fragile and powerful, must find the courage of her deepest convictions, discover the difference between predetermination and free will, secure her belief in her own sanity, and decide whether she will allow history to unfold come what may--or use her extraordinary gifts to bend history to her will ... and give herself the life she knows she is meant to have.
