In 1925, Alice Lind steps off a train in the rain-soaked coastal hamlet of Gordon Bay, Oregon. There, she expects to do nothing more difficult than administer IQ tests to a group of rural schoolchildren. A trained psychologist, Alice believes mysteries of the mind can be unlocked scientifically, but now her views are about to be challenged by one curious child.

I absolutely love this author. She writes historical fiction for both adults and teens. This novel is about a woman in the 1920s who is frustrated that, because she is a woman, she cannot get accepted at any schools to get her doctorate even though she has been an exceptional student all through her psychology masters. She is also a woman who enjoys sex in an age when that is severely frowned upon, and believes she has been reincarnated from a serial killer.

When Alice travels to the stormy Oregon coast to test grade school students, she is amazed to meet seven-year old Janie O'Daire who seems to have lived a previous life in Friendly, Kansas.

Disturbing psychological thriller about past lives and past sins. Dark, dark ending.
