With her timeless Little Women years away from fruition, Louisa May Alcott is busy writing 'blood and thunder' romance stories. To get by, she takes a job as a seamstress while the rest of the Alcott family winters in New Hampshire. Fortunately, Louisa has her friend Sylvia Shattuck to keep her company. Louisa accompanies her friend to visit Boston's most famous spiritual medium, Mrs. Agatha D. Percy, to contact Sylvia's long-dead father. Louisa isn't one to believe such nonsense, but she thinks the experience may inspire her imagination - until a prediction that Louisa will have an unexpected guest is followed by the arrival of her little sister Lizzie. Louisa and Sylvia visit the seer again to confirm whether her gifts are genuine - but Mrs. Percy's days of divination have been cut brutally short by a killer. Now, Louisa must solve the mystery of the crystal gazer's untimely death by uncovering the shocking truth about her life.
