Eventually after plodding through pages of mostly nothing a mystery plot is introduced. Organizationally, the whole thing is a mess. Jul 01, Stacey rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Aug 02, Salem, Massachusetts is an unusual town. Towner Whitney, the self-confessed unreliable narrator, hails from a family of Salem women who can read the future in the patterns in lace, and who have guarded a history of secrets going back generations.
I read this when it was first published in but decided to read it again when one of my book clubs picked it for our October selection. I liked what it changed about the characters I thought I already understood, particularly May, and how much it made me empathize with Towner and her family. People Barbybook is Following.
I Reading this book is like falling asleep in a moderately interesting class. And Barry’s descriptions of Salem, Mass. The story is filled with a cast of eccentric characters from Towner’s mother May who refuses to step a foot off the island she 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.
Barbybook – Milan, 09, Italy ( books)
Preview — Il lettrlce by Stefano Pastor. 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.
Also, as an editor, I can’t help but find mistakes and typos in books, and I found tons of them!
The only thing I have to know in order for me to make lettgice decision is: Bkgiarda same for Detective Rafferty, who is investigating the death of Eva, the disappearance of Angela and trying to build a strong enough case to drive the Christian cult out of town, once bugiardq for all. Sign in to Goodreads to learn more about Barbybook. There’s a young woman who’s been caught up in a cult led by an ex-relative of the family. Aug 18, Grace rated it liked it.
As Towner’s relationship with Rafferty develops, he grows increasingly concerned about her and the town and digs deeper into Towner’s past that she’s forgotten. Perhaps more importantly, I want to spend more time with them. The idea of this book and Towner’s voice are what first compelled me to read the entire thing after going through the first couple of chapters. Paperbackpages.
Each chapter starts with a little excepts from “The Lace Reader’s Guide” about how to make or read lace as we follow Towner Whitney’s return to Salem after a decade’s absense following the suicide of her twin sister. This will prevent Barbybook from sending you lettriec, friend request or from viewing your profile.
There’s a detective who’s slowly falling for the heroine. This is a great book that will keep you guessing throughout. My biggest issue with this book was the switching of points of view.
The acceptance of it all without too much fanfare was just too unbelievable to allow. His narration is third-person past tense. When her body is found out in the water it’s hard to believe that she drowned on her own.
Lace reading is a form of fortune-telling – a gift that most Whitney women have, to an excent. This was a murder mystery at heart with some history thrown in. View all 5 comments.
However, these little excerpts do more than just introduce the tone of each chapter, They end up providing important foreshadowing of what is to come later in the book.
Her great-aunt Eva is missing. However, I can’t say that this novel has kept my attention the whole time.
The Lace Reader
Especially Towner’s great-aunt Eva, who runs a tearoom and is a renowned lace reader. The lower rating is simply due to the fact that such a climactic turn of events should seemingly be explored a bit deeper. If that’s a spoiler, so be it.
