Clara was born with a veil, and the ability to see into the future. This much she knows. What she doesn't know is what other gifts will be revealed when she turns 18 in a few months. While her grandmother has been diligent in her efforts to prepare her for the inevitable changes to come, Clara can focus on precious little besides the devilishly handsome man she met at her coming out ball. Secure in the knowledge that she has a bright future ahead of her, the future Clara discovers is one that she could never have conjured in her wildest dreams.
Certain parts of the story are unbelievable such as the fact two time traveling women are immediately found by an obgyn in the middle of central park right when they need one, but the rest of the story is worthwhile.
I loved this enough that I've listened to it twice! Usually once is enough for me, but this was an intriguing story that was hard to put down. I listen when I do mundane tasks and read when I crawl into bed. an interesting take on time travel. I recommend this book.
Please give the narrator elocution lessons - it drives me crazy when narrators do not pronounce words correctly. One or two I will let slip, but there are more than a few in the first hour.
Whatever happened to happy-ever-after endings? Although Clair's Song had a good plot, I refuse to buy books that only lead into the next book. This is not a series. It is a sequel , a song without an ending.
