Io has an extraordinary memory power that means she can recall anything from any situation. In trying to ‘trick’ her memory into avoiding a situation, she finds herself inhabiting others’ memories and getting trapped in the past. She becomes stuck in Victorian times with her relative Talia, who has similar powers. Io wishes to return to her own time and life, but Talia is at first reluctant to help her, viewing Io as an unwanted manifestation in her thoughts. Talia’s gift means that she is in demand and her life in Victorian England takes interesting and dangerous twists and turns.
I thoroughly enjoyed this imaginative story and the characters in it. Talia and Io’s relationship was particularly enthralling. Io is able to communicate with Talia telepathically and has a ‘fly on the wall’ combined with a ‘spirit guide’ perspective in Talia’s life. The book is very well written and the descriptions and imagery is wonderful and enthralling. In Victorian England, a time of exploration into the scientific, unexplained and spiritual, Talia finds herself in theatrical and bizarre situations. Highly recommended. 5 stars.
