Never saw the ending coming This was a quick read. I had already decided how it would end, but never saw the twist coming. Loved the detail, the Salem setting. If you have been there, you will enjoy the descriptions of the the area. 400 years of history can't be boring.
Lace Reader Much of this book was slow but it had a great thought-provoking ending.

4 Stars Absorbing tale of Towner Whitney, who grew up reading lace in Salem MA. She comes back because her aunt Eva is missing. The characters are interesting and complex and the story flows so well.
5 Stars Towner(Sophya) Whitney comes from a heritage of lace readers. The women in the family not only make the lace but can a read a persons history/future in it. There is mystery, a little metaphysical & lots of page turning surprises. A definite read to the end.
