As she matures, her natural psychic talents unfold, putting her at odds with the skeptical, scientific philosophy of Elysium. So she and two friends sail to Rome. There she becomes a priestess in a Delphic temple, dispensing wisdom and healing to any who come. But her skeptical upbringing subtly undermines her dedication, and she succumbs to the allure of a love affair with a Roman senator.This is a marvelous story, delving deep into the consciousness of each character -- and revealing the power of self-deception, both in scientific inquiry and in self-knowledge. The ending is one of the most surprising in modern literature.
