"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 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."
At first I really wasn't sure I would like this book. I found myself starting it, getting caught up in it, then stopping it and forgetting about it for a week. I probably stopped reading it two or three times before I finally finished it. I really liked the twist at the end and am surprised I missed it.. But it was an OK book. Nothing spectacular, but not bad, either. View all my reviews >>
