The Probable Future

by Alice Hoffman

A family story with a difference - the female line of the Sparrow family all possess a different and unusual gift. This book really stayed with me - by the end the characters are your friends.


'It really was me who saw what was going to happen - I saw it with Miss Hewitt, and with the taxi driver, and then with that woman in the restaurant. The police didn't believe me,' Stella insisted, 'but he had nothing to do with it. I swear it.'

The thirteenth among them, born feet first on the day of the equinox. What had Jenny expected? Had she ever really thought Stella would grow up to be an ordinary girl, one who would blend in with the crowd, who would find only happiness and be spared any sorrows?

'I believe you.'
