The NEW YORK TIMES Top Ten Bestseller

It’s 1969, and holed up in a grimy tenement building in New York’s Lower East Side is a travelling psychic who claims to be able to tell anyone the date they will die. The four Gold children, too young for what they’re about to hear, sneak out to learn their fortunes.

Such prophecies could be dismissed as trickery and nonsense, yet the Golds bury theirs deep. Over the years that follow they attempt to ignore, embrace, cheat and defy the ‘knowledge’ given to them that day – but it will shape the course of their lives forever.

‘Such is her dazzling sureness of touch that you wonder if here is a writer who is truly capable of anything’ Daily Mail

  1. What a story! A wonderful and thought provoking book, beautifuly written. Powerful at times, also affecting. At first sight, this is the storytelling of a family, with family secrets, but this is actually about what drives you, what you would do if somebody told you when you were going to die… You won’t waste your time! Don’t miss this great read!
