It is 1915 and the world is at war. Seventeen-year-old Sasha Fox has a terrible gift - she can see the future.
It is 1915. 17-year-old Sasha Fox is the privileged only daughter of a respected doctor living in the wealthy seaside town of Brighton. Her brothers, Edgar and Tom, have gone to war.
Sasha has a terrible gift. She can see the future. Her premonitions show her untold horrors on the battlefields of the Somme, and worse still, what will happen to Edgar and Tom. Like the prophetess Cassandra, who foretold the tragedies of Troy, Sasha is trapped by power. No one will believe her. Her family have lost faith in her. She is determined to win them back, whatever the price. Stylishly written in poetic prose, this is a portrait of a world full of threat and a heroine resourceful enough to try to change the path of Fate.
