The village of Lily Dale is like no other. The only people who are allowed to own land are those with psychic powers. Still, it’s a good spot for Bella and her son Max to take a break. They were on their way to Chicago to live with her mother-in-law, the eternally cranky Millicent. After Bella’s husband died, there wasn’t money to live alone anymore. When the car broke down in Lily Dale, it seemed like a nice break.
