Some of It Was Real

Some of It Was Real

Nan Fischer2022
"A psychic who isn't sure she believes in herself and a skeptic journalist with one last chance at redemption are brought together by secrets from the past that also threaten to tear them apart. Psychic-medium Sylvie Young starts every show with her origin story, telling the audience how she discovered her abilities. But she leaves out a lot--the plane crash that killed her parents when she was four, the estranged adoptive parents who tend orchards in rainy Oregon, and the fact that she researches her clients on social media so she can be sure to make at least some accurate predictions. After a catastrophic reporting error, Thomas Holmes' next story at the LA Times may be his last, and he's got a great personal pitch. His mother was nearly bankrupted by "grief vampires" like Sylvie after a tragic accident, and he's dead set on using his last chance article to expose her for the conniving liar he's convinced she is. But the secrets Sylvie and Thomas are keeping from each other are nothing compared to the secrets they are keeping from themselves. Almost all of Sylvie's origin story is a lie, even the parts she never tells. Searching for the truth about her past might destroy them both--or it might be the only way to find out what is real"--
