Her gift provokes the interest, but also the fear of psychologists, journalists, friends, and relatives. All are amazed by Amanda's exceptional paranormal experiences. These experiences are considered "normal" within the Caribbean religious environment, but would be seen as an example of magic realism from outside the area
