I absolutely love historical fiction and read a lot of it; I love to learn history this way. I also enjoy reading science fiction, fantasy, horror, thriller and non-fiction science.
In Naples, Italy at the turn of the 20th century, Tommaso Labella gets the chance to photograph the medium Alessandra Poverelli. Tommaso captures a photo of Alessandra levitating a table and Alessendra captures his heart. Alessandra's ability to levitate tables, produces knocks and become possessed by spirits soon earns her a following along with much skepticism. One man of science, psychiatrist Camillo Lombardi believes that there may be some scientific explanation to Alessandra's feats. Lombardi takes Alessandra and Tommaso on a tour of Europe for shows and scientific testing; meanwhile, Nigel Huxley, head of England's Society for the Investigation of Medium believes that Alessandra is nothing but a cheat and launches a campaign to bring her down.
