Jorja always knew she was different. But it wasn't until she discovered her telekinetic ability that she realized just how different she was. Living with her frail mother and an obsessive, cruel, and hated aunt, Jorja grapples with the truth of her being.
As her story is revealed, other powers are uncovered - that she can see other people's souls in the colors that surround them - and we are led into a surprising and shocking world of fantasy, forcing doubt to the sanity of the heroine.
We follow Jorja's life, delving into her loves, hates, and fears, and cannot help but delight in the woman she becomes, despite the question that hangs mysteriously in the air.
It will be up to the listener to decide if Mageia and its diverse inhabitants are indeed real or only the illusionary world created by a disturbed mind due not only to grief, but also to her persecution by her aunt and the defective qualities of a barbarous doctor.

Yes, I feel in love with this book. It was truly a work of art. I loved how the story was told and the narration was wonderful.
When she buys the "home" Lucy is staying at.
It was a superb performance. She really made the story seem real. It was like if your grandma sat you down to tell you about her life. Excellent choice going with her for this book she brought the tale to life.
A gripping story of the life a girl with special powers
I LOVED this book. The book itself was told as a tale from and older lady about her life since she was a child. It was very gripping and had me interested from the very start. I listened nonstop until the end. I couldn't wait to find out what had happened next. She told her tale of her life and a bit about her family. With her family brought or a certain family member brought her trouble...and so the gripping story of her life starts, of family, loss, love and happiness. It was truly a remarkable book for all ages and sexes. My husband loved the book as well.
special powers- Jorja suspected of being "mad"
Yes, because of the Narrator's voice- very smooth, enveloping, clear toned and aristocratic- she gave a good vocal impression of all the various characters; each one had a "personality" because of her vocal treatments.
Sure, although this fantasy make believe genre is not my favorite- I would have to rely on reviews and research to find out if other books by this author are all in the realm of other world kind of habitats, or Victorian era context. Maybe something more contemporary but fantasy would be preferable.
