Phoebe Hiller's visit to her grandmother's home in England is not going well at all. Not only does everyone in the village seem to know who she is, but Phoebe is treated like an alien every time she opens her mouth. Worse, the episodes of second sight that have sometimes worried her have come back to plague her more than ever. It takes a chance meeting with a gypsy fortune teller to give Phoebe a new acceptance of her special gift. With the gypsy's friendship and guidance, Phoebe at last learns to use her ability in a way she never could have foretold.
