It was at these moments that my hope would rise. It was moments like Semele’s recollection of her trip to Amsterdam and the that means of the cards left with the swaddled babies that felt just like the real essence of what the unconventional could have been but was not. Instead, it was caught up in impressing the reader with the common, and rather melodramatic, story that leans toward overreaction and punctiliously placed descriptions of luxury and comfort. Even using the tarot card names for the bankruptcy titles felt flimsy. Abbi has been an empath from early youth. Her gifts of claircognizance, intuition, and psychic knowledge are improved by an intensive exercise in metaphysics and meditation.
