When Virgilia Wilde begins to suffer from strange visions she visits her local doctor, reporting somberly that her imagination has been playing tricks. What transpires is far more alarming; Virgilia seems to have developed the power of precognition, and with this terrible ability comes fears for the safety of her beloved daughter... The follow-up to the critically acclaimed haunted-house novel The Uninvited is one of the most sharply observed accounts we have of middle-class post-war Dublin.

About the Author
Dorothy Macardle (1889-1958), an Irish writer, novelist, playwright, and historian, was born in Dundalk into a wealthy brewing family. A member of the Gaelic League and Cumann na mBan, Macardle spent time imprisoned because of her activities during the Irish Civil War. She later wrote about those experiences in Earthbound: Nine Stories of Ireland (1924). One of her most famous books was The Irish Republic (1937), a narrative account of the Irish War of Independence and its aftermath. She died in Drogheda in 1958, critical of what she saw as the reduced status of women in the 1937 Constitution of Ireland.
