'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 comes 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 for generations. Exiled in California, she receives a phone call telling her that her beloved Great Aunt Eva has disappeared and Towner must return to her home after an absence of 17 years...
A literary page–turner with depth, narrative power and a story that novels like 'The Thirteenth Tale' can only dream of, 'The Lace Reader' is a bewitching and tightly plotted read.
