f The Second Sight of Zachary Cloudesley by Sean Lusk (2022) can help you determine whether this is a book for you. (Gods I'm getting desperate for intro material...)
Surprise-surprise, Zachary Cloudesley is the star of the novel. His mother dying in childbirth, Zachary's early days are with his loving father Abel, a clockwork inventor, as well as a strong-minded wet nurse, Fiona. As a boy, his rich, eccentric Aunt Frances also steps in to the picture, demanding that part of Zachary's upbringing be her responsibility. Through this variety of people, Zachary comes to his teenage years—something which happens faster than normal given Zachary's unusual talents. Able to see visions of past or future after touching a person, Zach develops a keen, sensitive intelligence to the people around him, and the purity of the love they have for him. When his father is taken, Zachary is forced to put his nascent adulthood into practice to find him.
