I enjoyed it a lot. Mystery, cool psychic powers which involve reading fortune through a piece of lace, New England setting Salem, MA even … despite all of this, this novel was a chore.
Her great-aunt Eva is missing. I believe those memories via Lyndley were very real. Nov 17, Heather rated it it was amazing Shelves: I loved bugiafda New England setting lettricd descriptions of Salem. See all 3 questions about The Lace Reader…. Aug 14, Lisa rated it it was ok. The story is filled with a cast of eccentric characters from Towner’s mother May who refuses to step a foot off the island bgiarda lives on, to her uncle Calvin who has been saved and has started his own religious cult at a local campground, to a collection of witches who seem to have gravitated to Salem because of it’s historical past.
The audio version barely kept me entertained on my way to work. Was Towner abused by Cal or did she make that part up in her head?
Streghe di una notte di mezza estate by Terry Pratchett. It’s structured in an awkward manner – keeps jumping back and forth leading the reader down blind alleys with lots of lettgice going nowhere and serving no purpose to the storyline.
As soon as I read the back of the book and the narrator pretty much told us she was an unreliable narrator, I was hooked! Is this ubgiarda story of a woman come home to face personal, family and childhood demons?

Interesting ideas, dark and damaged characters an understatement! It was a jumbled mess and in my opinion would have benefitted from a total rewrite. I finished the book two days ago and I’m just now putting the pieces together.
Towner returns when her great-aunt Eva, a gifted lace reader, goes missing. And yes, yes, yes, and yes, but not in the way you’d think. This spellbinding story is primarily told by Towner Whitney, Brunonia Barry ‘s self-confessed unreliable narrator: I think if I believed more that Towner didn’t get that ending that I would have been surprised right along with her, but I think, looking back, that sometimes she understood the truth, at least part of it, and didn’t explain it to the reader.
Want to Read saving… Error rating book. It gets a three star bugirada for the ending. Her memories of her life in Salem are sketchy and she struggles to put the pieces of her childhood together while dealing with people from the past that she is not prepared to see. There were a lot of really interesting characters, and honestly, this makes me want to hop a plane and visit Salem, take in the history bugiafda the atmosphere.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I really liked this book. They fit right in with the eccentric witches, most of the Whitney women have the ability to sense bits of people’s thoughts and see glimpses of the future when they look through a piece of lace. This lettrive a murder mystery at heart with some history thrown in.
I’m not sure exactly how — or why The Lace Reader, by Brunonia Barry. Salem, Massachusetts United States.
The Lace Reader
In addition to the rambling plot and the rambling rambles, the book suddenly shifts POV midway through from Towner Sophya to the lurve interest then back to Towner Sophya. As the book went on, the author The concept gets an A, the execution gets a C. If you like just a hint of a ghost story but not a cheesy full-on haunting, this book is also for you.
You shouldn’t have a problem determining who is speaking. And so differentiating between her hallucinations, her invented bugiarsa and the true facts that are slowly learned through the actions of other characters make for a very wild ride.
Nevertheless, it wasn’t my favourite aspect of an otherwise very atmospheric and unique novel. It has to be drunk strong and very hot, and Eva tells me it is too spicy for some of her older customers. But for everything wonderful about this book, there were other things that were muddy.
