And no character in recent literature completes the journey in a so startlingly dramatic a way as Jennifer Hamilton, the shy, secretive heroine of Sally Emerson’s auspicious first novel. For few fifteen-year-olds are caught up in a bizarre murder trail. And few find themselves using psychic powers to escape reality: to summon a hero from another century, or to contact a friend whose tragic death has forced a sensitive girl to withdraw into a private world. Still fewer are able to use clairvoyance to rescue the person they are closest to in the here-and now. Jennifer Hamilton is a striking heroine of a memorable first novel – a swirling story of romanticism and revolt, spiritualism and sexuality, imagination and reality, selfishness…and learning to love.
