Bargain Book Copy
Also available as Scratch & Dent for $5.89 USD
In an unnamed city, Edie works for the Elysian Society, a private service that allows grieving clients to reconnect with lost loved ones. She and her fellow workers, known as “bodies,” wear the discarded belongings of the dead and swallow pills called lotuses to summon their spirits - numbing their own minds and losing themselves in the process. Edie has been with the company for five years, an unusual record. Her success is the result of careful detachment: she seeks refuge in the lotuses’ anesthetic effects and avoids personal contact with her clients.
But when Edie channels Sylvia, the recently deceased wife of Patrick Braddock, she becomes obsessed with the glamorous couple. Despite the murky circumstances surrounding Sylvia’s drowning, Edie breaks her own rules and becomes emotionally attached to Patrick, moving deeper into his life and summoning Sylvia outside the Elysian Society’s walls. And as the lines between Edie’s and Sylvia’s desires begin to blur, Edie finds herself taking increasing risks to keep Patrick within her grasp. Suddenly her quiet life begins unraveling, as she grapples not only with Sylvia’s growing influence and the questions surrounding her death, but with her own long-buried secrets.
A tale of desire and obsession, deceit and dark secrets, The Possessions is a seductive, absorbing page-turner that builds to a shattering, unforgettable conclusion.
