Description

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.

Professional reviews

"Hypnotism, mind control, and the birth of feminism are woven into an audio tale thatÕs just a bit creepy and a little bit preachy. Jennifer Ikeda narrates the story of 17-year-old Olivia, who is chomping at the bit to get out from under the tyrannical control of her father. ItÕs Halloween night, 1900, in Portland, Oregon, and the world is changing as it heads into the twentieth century. Women are fighting for the right to vote, men are trying to keep them in their place, and people are curious about vampires, particularly Dracula; mesmerism; and mind control. Ikeda delivers the story as if caught in the hypnotic trance that starts Olivia on her journey, displaying little emotion or enthusiasm. The resulting emotional distance drains the life from this disturbing tale. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
