The Foreshadowing

Marcus Sedgwick

Publisher:Orion Publishing Co

It is 1915. 17 year old Sasha Fox is the privileged only daughter of a respected doctor living in the wealthy seaside town of Brighton. But her brothers, Edgar and Tom, have gone to war and Sasha has a terrible gift. She can see the future. Her premonitions show her untold horrors on the battlefields of the Somme. Corpse worms crawling over the faces of soldiers soon to die, and worse still, what will happen to Edgar and Tom. Like the prophetess Cassandra, who so many centuries before foretold the tragedies of Troy, Sasha is trapped by power. No one will believe her. She feels stifled by her over-protective mother and restrictive father. Her family have lost faith in her. She is determined to win them back, whatever the price. And it is a high one - seeing the future is a fate almost too awful to contemplate - for who wants to see the end of their own story...? Stylishly written in his familiar, poetic prose Marcus's novel is set in the First World War. As with all his novels, the story is that of a world full of threat and a child in jeopardy- but Alexandra is a heroine resourceful enough to try to change the path of Fate.
