Miramont Castle, built in 1897 and mysteriously abandoned three years later, is home to many secrets. Only one person knows the truth: Adrienne Beauvier, granddaughter of the Comte de Challembelles and cousin to the man who built the castle.
Clairvoyant from the time she could talk, Adrienne’s visions show her the secrets of those around her. When her visions begin to reveal dark mysteries of her own aristocratic French family, Adrienne is confronted by her formidable Aunt Marie, who is determined to keep the young woman silent at any cost. Marie wrenches Adrienne from her home in France and takes her to America, to Miramont Castle, where she keeps the girl isolated and imprisoned. Surrounded by eerie premonitions, Adrienne is locked in a life-or-death struggle to learn the truth and escape her torment.
I couldn’t even write my own synopsis of this story, so I did something I have never done before...copied from Goodreads. This story turned out far different than I thought it would be. Or even what it could be. A woman with visions *should* be interesting especially since it’s set in the past where people are not nearly as forgiving as they are today of those kinds of idiosyncrasies. But this book is boring. So very boring. I slogged through it and the last 20% or so wasn’t horrible, but I just couldn’t get into it. The plot had definite potential, but the execution was not for me.
