The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin

Benjamin follows up the Edna Ferber Prize-winning The Anatomy of Dreams with a BookExpo Buzz Book already bought by the Fox TV Group. It opens in 1969 New York with four children daringly visiting a fortune teller said to be able to predict the date of one’s death. Elder siblings Daniel and Varya become an army doctor and a scientist, respectively, while younger, rebellious Klara works as a magician in Las Vegas, and the insouciant youngest, Simon, finds love and dance in San Francisco. Did the fortune teller’s predictions determine their fates?  Library Journal
