After being diagnosed with a life-threatening tumor at the age of 22 Leonora Piper sought out the services of a known healer and medium that was reputed to be able to instill psychic abilities in his patrons. During her first session with this medium she went into a trance and thus began a long and interesting career in the psychic arts. Though she claimed psychic experiences were common to her, even in childhood, her session with the medium resulted in her ability to channel such diverse entities as a French doctor, Abraham Lincoln, a young Italian maid, and Johann Sebastian Bach, Mrs. Piper and the Society for Psychical Research is the story of this corseted maven and the Society for Psychical Research's exhaustive fifteen year investigation into her supernatural powers.
