Virgilia Wilde's old cook and friend, Brigid, has no doubt what it is: she swears that her mistress is seeing ghosts. Dr. Franks, the psychiatrist whom Virgilia consults, and his interested doctor son, Perry, prefer to term it paranormal precognition. Virgilia herself, a widow, sensible and seemingly normal in all respects save this, describes it as being "like driving a car that got out of control. I seem to be skidding about in time". Which makes three different ways of saying that Virgilia has strange glimpses of the future, of what will happen to certain people she knows. Harmless, you might think, if a little frightening, in the case of one living quietly and apart in a charming country cottage. But a little gypsy boy comes to trouble Virgilia's peace of mind, and what if she should glean something of the future of her own daughter whose happiness seems so assured? (Peter Currie)
