Psychic Emily Ross attracts spirits, has prophetic dreams and can sense people's thoughts, but she hides her true nature from a judgmental world. Until the day she finally walks away from her stifling routine and takes a job at the curio shop owned by elderly scholar Henry Paradis. A kindred spirit and student of the occult sciences, he urges Emily to embrace her magical nature and use divination to look forward. She sets out to create the path to happiness, as embodied by the famous “Fool’s Journey,” twenty-two sequential steps described by the Tarot’s mystical Higher Arcane. Every chapter begins with the image of a card and its meaning, which the action roughly follows. When Emily meets international antiques dealer Tony Novak, who seems to adore her, she struggles to find the courage to trust him. Tony says they can steer the future with their thoughts. Will Emily make her dreams come true?
Illustrated by images from the Payen Tarot of Marseilles (1713), which is the oldest surviving Tarot deck.
