Bugiatda the disappearance of two women is bringing Towner back home to Salem—and is bringing to light the shock Every gift has a price. I liked this book at first because of the visual setting of Salem and Marblehead, the unusual dysfunctional family, and the mystery of the aunt’s death.
Had this been done a little differently it could have been enjoyable. Returning home sets in motion again all the dysfunctional family dynamics that drove Towner away fifteen years earlier. There was a lot of talk about the characters being readers but other than the blurb at the beginning of each chapter, there was very little knowledge imparted.
This book wasn’t as good as I thought it would be, given all the press it’s been getting. They will not be notified.

And I liked that even though I got that Towner’s history was off and I thought I’d figured her out, I was still surprised by the revelation at the end. The story is told in alternating points of view, as well as through journals, police reports, personal stories that may be pure fiction rather than actual memories.
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.
Although the book warns the reader from literally the very beginning that we’ll be seeing things through the eyes of someone who lies and doesn’t remember the truth clearly, still 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. When Detective Rafferty appears in Towner’s life, things get even murkier.
There were things I definitely liked about this book, the psychology for one and the visual of Salem, MA for another, but the organization of the book bothered me.
There’s a young woman who’s been caught up in a cult led by an ex-relative of the family. Towards the end, in a fairly intense and climactic action scene Towner Sophya has a thought which leads to a recollection and the reader is forced to endure a break in the action while travelling down memory lane with Towner Sophya for quite a few minutes. Lace reading is a form of fortune-telling – a gift that most Whitney women have, to an excent. The concept gets an A, the execution gets a C.
However, it was very over-the-top in “The Lae Reader”. Especially Towner’s great-aunt Eva, who runs a tearoom and is a renowned lace reader. Salem, Massachusetts United States. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
Towner Whitney is in her early thirties and she has just returned to Salem from her self imposed exile in California because her beloved Great Aunt Eva ha Salem, Massachusetts is an unusual town. Aug 14, Lisa rated it it was ok. I also would have preferred to have just small sections as excerpts from the Lla Reader’s Guide instead of them starting each chapter.

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. As the book went on, the author seemed to gain more control of her writing and her story, but by then, it was too late.
The buguarda pulsates with secrecy—laced with hints, half-truths, and haunting details.
Il trono di spade – Il grande inverno Le cronache del ghiaccio e leftrice fuoco, 1 by George R. 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.
Her sister was given away at birth? It’s a complex psychological drama bugiada has plenty of interior and exterior action.

The story is filled with a cast letttice 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. Perhaps I’ll understand the book better once I read the companion novel.
I loved that Towner was an unreliable narrator. My real first name is Sophya. Boy, was I wrong! La regina della casa by Sophie Kinsella Goodreads Author.
