Towner has the gift, too, as well as hallucinations and I wanted to read The Lace Reader because it is set in Salem, Massachusetts, and it’s about a family of women with the gift of reading fortunes in lace. Jul 01, Stacey rated it really liked it Recommends it for: There is a whole lot of painful backstory exploration of the heroine’s dead twin sister who was given away as an infant and suffered awful things and is now dead.
What really happened to Towner Forced to confront the memories she’s suppressed all those years ago and faced with the possibility that her great-aunt might be dead, Towner tries to get answers from Eva’s friends and the rest of her family. To view it, click here.
And not all of them, even – I still have so many questions. Discover new books on Goodreads. The book seemed to heavily imply that she couldn’t be trusted because of what had happened to her in the past.
Maybe, then, losing Towner’s voice, and the addition that she’s just crazy, are what left me merely compelled in the last hundred pages or so just to finish the book. Jan 16, bookczuk rated it it was lettricce Shelves: Aug 21, Jess rated it liked it.
The Lace Reader
Witches, Puritans, Ipswitch lace, and the dark waters of Salem harbor all play a part in creating a unique setting for the story. Set in Salem, Massachusetts, the novel interlaces historic references with modern allusions that waver between somber and glib, creating an evocative, unpredictable atmosphere. I felt, at times, I needed to get out my PDR to look up the meds the main character was or had ingested.
Especially the whole concept of Lace Readers, I fell instantly in love with it!

I suspect that the opening line of this book, where the main character warns us that she is a liar, was added after it was finished as an excuse for the flimsy and unconvincing ending. How many point of views are there? View all 5 comments. View all 4 comments.
My favorite stories are those in which the main characters dig up long-buried family secrets, secrets which threaten to rewrite the history they thought they knew. View all 8 comments. Barbybook wants to read Streghe di una notte di mezza estate by Terry Pratchett. The concept gets an A, the execution gets a C. And I like to not be able to guess the ending until the last page. I, for one, was quite bemused by that. Towner Whitney is the main character and the primary narrator of the story.
I mean, come on already! Thanks for telling us about the problem. It was well done. If one chooses to tackle such an intense subject, I believe that they should deal with it fully and thoroughly. I guess if there had been more of the lace-readi There were a couple of things that drew me to this book — the idea of lace reading as a way of prophecy or fortune telling of sorts, the setting of Salem and the islands nearby, a hint at mystery and supernatural things.
It’s structured in an awkward manner – keeps jumping back and forth leading the reader down blind alleys with lots of scenes going nowhere and serving no purpose to the storyline. Highly recommend this one.
If you are tired of knowing the end from the beginning, bugiardz you are ready to meet some people and perhaps change your point of view, you must delve into The Lace Reader. My boss forced me to read this, and I’m really glad she did.

I would liken it more to Fight Club, where Tyler Durden is the made-up alter-ego of the main character. 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. Okay, so this book is about a family of women with “the sight,” who can read a person’s future through lace. Towner’s return and Eva’s death rip open the past and send everyone concerned reeling.
Una famiglia quasi perfetta by Jane Shemilt. It was a little jarring ironically, those sixty pages were my favorite part of the book. Family drama, New England setting, paranormal vs.
The Lace Reader (The Lace Reader, #1) by Brunonia Barry
However, it was very over-the-top bugirada “The Lae Reader”. You shouldn’t have a problem determining who is speaking. The mystical and mythical Eva was my favorite character, mostly because of her tea room and lla, but the locale also is a strong contender for favorite character.
This is a great book that will keep you guessing throughout. Sep 04, Carey rated it it was amazing. Or will his perception of reality be completely shattered, destroying himself and Towner in the process?
A moment flutters by that briefly captures your imagination, but mainly things are just droning along. The writing in this story is excellent and there were many features that made this book appeal to me. The police suspect her estranged son-in-law, Cal.
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! Perhaps the narration of what was happening presently was done in the present tense to distinguish it from Towner’s journals written when she was 17 in the past tense.
Towner says she is a liar at the start.
Although the lettric warns the reader from literally the very beginning that we’ll be seeing things through the eyes of someone who I’m biased in regards to this book, because this October, I’ll be traveling to the North Shore and Salem for my honeymoon.
