Mary, The Clairvoyant by Mary Shattuck
Mary, born with the gift of clairvoyance, a trait that runs through her Celtic ancestors, lives in the wrong place at the wrong time. The Massachusetts Bay Colony, founded by Puritans in 1630, tolerates no other faith or people in the settlements. After a midwife is executed for witchcraft, Mary dares not admit her visions to anyone, even to herself. With the aid of her concerned and understanding parents, Mary finally learns that she can no longer hide her non-conforming ways; she must embrace this gift with its dubious benefits and find an acceptable way to fully live her life.
