In this novel, computers can show people their romantic future, but two strangers can’t see true love when it’s right in front of them.
A young librarian named Evelyn is obsessed with a new technology. She can’t stop visiting the office of Dr. Chin, an “envisioninst,” because she needs to know that she’ll meet someone and be happy one day. Godfrey, another client, ends up at Dr. Chin’s only because his fiancée insisted they know their fate before taking the plunge. But when Godfrey meets Evelyn in the waiting room, true love may be right in front of them, but they are too preoccupied—and too burdened by their pasts—to recognize it.
This smart, fresh love story, with its quirky twists and turns, ponders life’s big questions—about happiness, fate, and our very existence—as it follows Evelyn and Godfrey’s quest for the elusive answers.
