Publisher's Summary

Mary is the second daughter of the Sherborn family. Gifted with clairvoyance, a strain that runs through her Celtic ancestors, Mary is born in the wrong place at the wrong time. The Massachusetts Bay Colony, founded by Puritans in 1630, tolerates no other faith or people. After the magistrates execute the first midwife for witchcraft, Mary dares not admit her visions to anyone, even to herself while she conforms to the Puritan faith. Marrying both wealth and power, she struggles to maintain the respect of her community while concealing her visions. With the aid of her concerned and understanding parents, Mary finally learns that she can no longer hide her non-conforming ways; she must embrace this gift with its dubious benefits and find an acceptable way to fully live her life. 

Mary, the Clairvoyant is the second book of The Watertown Chronicles, a saga of one of America’s immigrant families. William Sherborn, an early immigrant to Massachusetts, his wife, and their family of 10 children live through the turbulent period in colonial history that surrounds the devastating King Philip’s War in 1675. The chronicle comprises the 12 stories of these individuals, beginning in 1666 with the birth of the 10th sibling and ending with his wedding in 1686.

Not a professional recording

This author is reading her own work, and it sounds like recorded it in her own living room. It makes me appreciate the professionals, both the sound quality and the performance!
I returned it after a half hour or so, can’t speak to the story much, but I would have continued listening under better circumstances.
