Each year thousands of visitors travel to Lily Dale, the oldest and largest community of spiritualists in the world. They come to this little Victorian village in New York State to consult with the mediums who live there in hopes that they can communicate with their dead relatives or catch a glimpse of the future. Weaving past and present, the living and the dead, award-winning journalist Christine Wicker follows three women's stories while introducing us to a colorful cast of characters along the way - including famous historical visitors such as Harry Houdini and Me West. In doing so, Wicker captures the life of this strange town that has changed remarkably little over the years.
(Key Words: Lily Dale, New York, Christine Wicker, Mae West, Spiritualism, Harry Houdini).
