Publisher's Summary

It's 1895, and after the suicide of her mother, 16-year-old Gemma Doyle is shipped off from the life she knows in India to Spence, a proper boarding school in England. Lonely, guilt-ridden, and prone to visions of the future that have an uncomfortable habit of coming true, Gemma's reception there is a chilly one. To make things worse, she's been followed by a mysterious young Indian man, a man sent to watch her. But why? What is her destiny? And what will her entanglement with Spence's most powerful girls, and their foray into the spiritual world, lead to?

Excellent listen

I recently joined audible to listen to stories while at work all day. I got sick of the repeat playlists on my music streaming apps. This book was my first selection. I had tried reading it when I was a teenager but couldn’t follow along even though I really enjoyed the story. The audio version was done in a way where I was able to put the pieces together and fully understand the story. This is a great book for anyone who enjoys young adult fantasy and romance. Very fast paced and thrilling.

Abridged

It doesn't tell you that it's an abridged version. It leaves too much out. The narrator is great though,
