I was amused that the heroine believed that having superpowers would make her an undesirable wife and how happy she would be to be rid of them...when those same superpowers saved her love interest's life THREE TIMES in the space of the episode!!! Murder mystery, psychic phenomena.

Getting behind again... ugh... anyway, this one might have struck me at just the right time because it reminded me of how old-time radio shows were done. Or maybe just the subject matter was easily understandable. A crew of motley lumberjacks in a remote location who have been served their food for years by a tall, plain woman who thinks she isn't attractive suddenly have in their midst a new guy who takes a liking to her. One of their group, a sullen, craggy guy who had tried to cave man his way into her heart and didn't succeed, gets angry about his the new competition and tries to do him in. But the cook has a power to see the future, and is determined to do what she can to keep any harm from happening to him. A good listen.

Straight forward radio drama of a woman seeing an unpleasant future.

The cook of a lumberjack camp has the ability to foresee events. When she has a horrible vision of the new man in camp, she decides to act to prevent another death. This closely resembles some of Elspeth Eric's work. Too mushy for me. Might appeal to those who enjoy that sort of thing.

A woman and her mother are cooks at a remote lumber camp when the daughter discovers she has the gift of second sight and can foretell the future occasionally. One new lumberjack takes a shining to her, and she to him, but his future is not filled with bright happy things, and she must deal with her knowledge of his future and attempt to influence the outcomes.

The voice of Big Red is classic. Just an OK story. Fun in parts. 3 stars. Oh, and EG, it's alright to say "They lived happily ever after."
