When seventeen-year-old Sarah works in the fortune-telling booth at a school carnival, she finds that sometimes she can really see the future in the crystal ball, a talent that disturbs some of the other students and makes them suspect her of being a witch. The crystal paperweight should have been clear, but it was not. Handsome, popular Eric Garrett decides that Sarah Zoltanne is just the right person to play a fortune-teller at the high-school fair. Sarah is surprised and pleased. After all, she and her mother have only just moved to the small town of Pine Crest. Sarah's role at the fair is all a game; the earphones hidden under her costume are the extent of her supernatural powers. But as Sarah peers into the crystal ball, disturbing images suddenly appear, revealing information she could not possibly know. When Sarah's visions start coming true, the students believe she's a witch and threaten her. Then Sarah begins to have such vivid dreams about the Salem witch trials that it seems as if she actually lived in Salem more than three hundred years ago. What is happening in Pine Crest? Sarah knows her life is in danger--can it possibly be true that those who threaten her are seeking revenge from another lifetime? Lois Duncan is in top form in this harrowing supernatural thriller as she applies her uncanny ability to make her characters--as well as her readers--understand the dark side of human nature and the consequences of vengeance. Sarah is alarmed when her harmless future telling turns out to be true & she begins dreaming of the Salem Witch Trials
