Daisy Gamble is a woman of extrasensory talents — she sings and flowers bloom, and she always knows where you've placed your keys — but it's her smoking habit that leads her to Dr. Mark Bruckner, a psychiatrist who attempts to hypnotize her addiction away. In Daisy, Dr. Bruckner discovers the case — and perhaps the love — of his life as he unlocks her past self, an 18th-century British aristocrat named Melinda Welles. Mark becomes increasingly enamored of Melinda as he watches her relive her great love affair with Edward Moncrief. All is going well until Mark decides to publish his findings, and Daisy realizes she's been unwittingly along for the ride!
