After a lifetime of keeping other people's secrets, fortune teller Madam Burova, before she can have a little piece of life for herself, must fulfill a promise made in the 1970s, when she and her girlfriends were carefree, with their whole lives still before them.
Brighton. After inheriting her mother's fortune-telling business as a young woman, Imelda Burova has spent her life on the Brighton pier practicing her trade. After a lifetime of keeping other people's secrets, Madam Burova is ready to have a little piece of life for herself. But she still has one last thing to do: fulfill a promise made in the 1970s, when she and her girlfriends were carefree, with their whole lives still before them. In London, Billie has lost her university job, her marriage, and her place in the world when a sudden and unlikely discovery leaves her very identity in question. Determined to find answers, she must follow a trail which leads to Brighton, the pier, and directly to Madame Burova's door. -- adapted from jacket

    Imelda Burova has collected several secrets in her fortune-teller's booth. The daughter of a Romani, Imelda took over her mother's spot on the Brighton promenade reading tarot cards and plumbing the depths of her crystal ball in the 1970s. When the new manager of a local vacation spot decides to bring on entertainment for the guests, Imelda joins a motley crew of performers. Decades later, Imelda reveals one of the secrets she's kept, writing to a woman named Billie that Billie's mother abandoned Billie at the fortune-teller's door as a baby. Hogan, author of The Keeper of Lost Things (2017), melds Billie's search for the truth about her origins with the events of Imelda's unforgettable summer season in 1972. The novel is stuffed with an extensive supporting cast of characters, including a dashing daredevil motorcycle rider, a trio of mermaids, and a man who never forgets a face and claims he works for M15. At its center, Billie and Imelda's burgeoning relationship crackles with unanswered questions in this heady mix of mystery, romance, and friendship. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
