Jean Lyttle, Sheila Lacey

The title character is born within the shadow of Ireland’s Blarney Castle, and at an early age realizes she has psychic powers. She leaves for London to visit a sister who has shamefully married an Englishman who is also a Protestant, and is tempted by a career on the stage. Through a fellow performer, Sheila meets Australian-born Sunny Napier, who is as talented as either Noel Coward or Ivor Novello, and like those two gentlemen is “one of those” (p. 145).
