A penniless yet strikingly beautiful orphan, Marianne Ransom's indomitable spirit has enabled her to survive a cruel life on the backstreets of Victorian London. But it is her gift of second sight that carries her into the world of money and privilege—a power brought on by a strange twist of fate. In the opulent home of a wealthy duchess, Marianne is being called upon to summon her late father—a noted mystic—from the grave. But Marianne's exceptional abilities have become a perilous trap. And suddenly knowing too much could prove fatal.

Marianne Ransom, orphaned daughter of a country squire, is rescued from a questionable living on the back streets of London by a mysterious attorney. Adopted by a wealthy duchess, she's told she isn't who she thinks she is and that she has powers she never knew existed. Norma West delivers Marianne's part with a spirited sweetness. The young Duke Henry, a spoiled child of 12, is revealed as a mischievous, but thoroughly lovable, brat (like many boys that age). West's portrayals of other characters are less adept, especially the men. Overall, the production offers lively entertainment from start to finish, remarkably free of the dull spots that plague so many unabridged books.
