Summary
Using the lore and the folk-magic of the men and women who settled North America, Orson Scott Card has created an alternate world where magic works, and where that magic has colored the entire history of the colonies.

Dowsers find water, the second sight warns of dangers to come, and a torch can read a person's future--or their hearts
