Ok, I’m probably over excited by the prospect of having gotten this book in the mail this morning but I don’t care. LOL. I am excited and I’m very excited to read it too! The book is called The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry. I received it after putting my name in for a copy over at Book Club Girl. What an awesome blog she has! I love it!
This book sounds so good. From the cover:
Every gift has a price . . .
Every piece of lace has a secret . . .
My name is Towner Whitney. No, that’s not exactly true. My real first name is Sophya. Never believe me. I lie all the time. . . .
Towner Whitney, the self-confessed unreliable narrator of The Lace Reader, 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, but the disappearance of two women brings Towner home to Salem and the truth about the death of her twin sister to light.
The Lace Reader is a mesmerizing tale that spirals into a world of secrets, confused identities, lies, and half-truths in which the reader quickly finds it’s nearly impossible to separate fact from fiction, but as Towner Whitney points out early on in the novel, “There are no accidents.”
Doesn’t it sound great! I’ve already started reading it and will say that from the first page I was already hooked on the story. I’ll have a review up in the next few days or less I would say.
Thanks again go out to the Book Club Girl!
