Summary
Born in 1949 in a private blacks-only hospital in rural Georgia, Lena is the third child and longed-for first daughter of Nellie and Jonah, who own the local bar and liquor store. Considered "special" because she was born with a caul, believed to bestow sight into the future, Lena learns as a toddler that her special powers have more to do with the past: she can see and talk with ghosts. Despite her extraordinary talent, Lena is most memorable for the ordinariness of her everyday life: her first friendships, her years at school, her observations of her parents' sometimes stormy relationship, her grief at her grandmother's death
Summary
Follows the coming of age of Lena McPherson, who was born with the ability to predict the future, as she grows into a fearful, ostracized teenager, and finally learns to accept love and find her own way
