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?

Brilliant!!!! That's all I have to say!
This was one of those books that I just couldn't put down. This is book one of a three book trilogy. The story leaves you wanting to turn the next page, and there is always suspense or a scandal waiting. Love, Love, Love this book.
