Publisher's Summary

Olivia Mead is a headstrong, independent girl - a suffragist - in an age that prefers its girls to be docile. It’s 1900 in Oregon, and Olivia’s father, concerned that she’s headed for trouble, convinces a stage mesmerist to try to hypnotize the rebellion out of her. But the hypnotist, an intriguing young man named Henri Reverie, gives her a terrible gift instead: She’s able to see people’s true natures, manifesting as visions of darkness and goodness, while also unable to speak her true thoughts out loud. These supernatural challenges only make Olivia more determined to speak her mind, and so she’s drawn into a dangerous relationship with the hypnotist and his mysterious motives, all while secretly fighting for the rights of women. Winters breathes new life into history once again with an atmospheric, vividly real story, including archival photos and art from the period throughout.

Ok

This was a bit tedious because of the fact that the narration was robotic in sections... Like a computer voice. Whoever edited this did a poor job. Ignore that and it's a good story.

Clunky, but still a good audible read

I enjoyed this book and the way it forces the reader not just to look at the story being told, but how it may be present in the reader's own life story. I do think that the black/white view of the character of people, largely with the bad/black being men was a bit clunky and unrealistic, however, it was still really interesting to listen to and was an unfortunately good book as I should be studying for a Uni exam...

I also really enjoy books read by J. Ikeda, so win win
