The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry

Preparing For Christmas Season In The Harried Book World: Book #3

“What a wonderfully complicated and rich novel! Set in past and present Salem Massachusetts, the story takes off immediately, interspersing splendid detail about the history of lace makers as well as the famous witch trials, with the modern story of a family’s intricate history and the manifestations for the present generation. The novel is packed with interesting characters (including modern witches) and many plot lines which come together magnificently at the conclusion. A truly amazing and riveting read.” — Karen Frank in Indie Bound review

I read the ARC of this one a couple months ago and quite liked it. I didn’t love it, but it was interesting story that I found myself unable to stop in the middle of. It (and especially the ending) reminded me of Anita Shreve’s stories – which isn’t a bad thing.

I was pleased to see this title made it into our regional holiday catalog as I think it will be a fun book to hand sell.
