by Karen Christino
Once the world's most famous astrologer, Evangeline Adams single-handedly popularized astrology in the United States. Foreseeing the Future not only chronicles Adams' life, but also illuminates the history of astrology and the occult in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
Karen Christino’s one-of-a-kind biography tells the colorful,
astounding tale of a woman who defied convention and made a lasting impression
on American culture. Adams wrote four best-sellers and had a top-rated
national radio show in the early 1930's. She battled legal authorities
in New York City for the right to practice astrology, married a man over
twenty years her junior, founded a tremendous business enterprise, and
made stunning predictions. J.P. Morgan, Tallulah Bankhead and Joseph
Campbell were just a few of Evangeline's renowned clients. This book
will fascinate anyone interested in cultural history, women's studies,
or astrology – skeptic and believer, expert and novice alike.
"Everyone in astrology will adore this book written grippingly and beautifully
by Karen Christino. The research is thorough without being heavy,
and the words are picturesque and strong enough to inspire a motion picture…
a movie that MUST be made of this book, about this incredible Adams life
and career! I spent nine and one-half hours without interruption
reading this book; it is THAT compelling and rewarding. One can not
put it down, nor ever forget it! Wow!"
– Noel Tyl, astrologer and author
"Ms. Christino presents the existing evidence regarding the real Evangeline
Adams. She separates the myths from the facts of Evangeline’s life
and provides us with a personal and in-depth portrait of the origins, deeds
and accomplishments of this legendary figure of American astrology.
A must read for anyone interested in the history of astrology in the U.S."
– Robert Zoller, astrologer and author
"An intriguing look at astrology and its acceptance in the late nineteenth
and early twentieth centuries... definitely a significant contribution."
– Joan McEvers for Madison Books
