I received a free copy of this book from Book of the Month Club.

This was a strange book. It was essentially a short story in book form. It follows a woman as she tries various things to make money. One of those things is to fake being a psychic. She goes to houses and pretends to cleanse them. Things get strange when she feels real psychic energy in one of the houses, and meets the son of the owner.

I was disappointed in the ending. Without giving too much away, the kid was a spoiled brat. As much as the woman was getting by as a fraud, the kid is an even bigger fraud. He just wants to get something for himself, and he'll do what he has to, including changing his story, to get it. I'm glad I didn't pay for this book. It wouldn't have been worth it.
