This carefully researched historical novel takes the reader into Boston in the late nineteenth century, when physically and emotionally damaged soldiers returned  from the  Civil War, merchants traded with China, and academics and ordinary people alike searched for higher truths. Creating characters based on  historical figures -- with a cameo by Prof. William James from Harvard -- Royce evokes the period, as the practitioners of spiritualism sought to evoke the spirits of the dead.
