Summary:

"A young child psychologist steps of a train, her destination a foggy seaside town. There, she begins a journey causing her to question everything she believes about life, death, memories, and reincarnation.In 1925, Alice Lind steps off a train in the rain-soaked costal hamlet of Gordon Bay, Oregon. There, she expects to do nothing more difficult than administer IQ tests to a group of rural school children. A trained psychologist, Alice believes mysteries of the mind can be unlocked scientifically, but now her views are about to be challenged by one curious child. Seven-year-old Janie O'Daire is a mathematical genius, which is surprising. But what is disturbing are the stories she tells: that her name was once Violet, she grew up in Kansas decades earlier, and she drowned at age nineteen. Alice delves into these stories, at first believing they're no more than the product of the girl's vast imagination. But, slowly, Alice comes to the realization that Janie might indeed be telling a strange truth. Alice knows the investigation may endanger her already shaky professional reputation, and as a woman in a field dominated by men she has no room for mistakes. But she is unprepared for the ways it will illuminate terrifying mysteries within her own past, and in the process, irrevocable changes her life."


Way i am waiting.... 

I love a good Historical Fiction. 
And if it is combined with a topic of a female professional in a profession where she still has to fight for her standing. 

The cover might have also had something to do with it, since i really think it looks wonderful. 

I am also really interested how the whole Historical Fiction aspect is interwoven with the Fantasy/Paranormal aspects of the story. 

To me the entire book just sounds really interesting and different, and who doesn't love those kinds of books? I certainly do!
