Every gift has a price . . . every piece of lace has a secret.

Towner Whitney, the self-confessed unreliable narrator, 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. Now the disappearance of two women is bringing Towner back home to Salem—and is bringing to light the shocking truth about the death of her twin sister.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible!! One of the worst books ever. I read approximately two books a week; didn't get past page 50. No wonder it was on sale. It's going to goodwill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On of the best Towner is from a very special line of women who can read fortunes by looking at a piece of lace; in fact she can read minds. But she has fled her Salem home to live across the country in California. But when her Aunt Eva dies, she knows she has to return to Salem to deal with the funeral and her aunt's estate. She also realizes there is a lot of unresolved issues waiting for her there as well. Soon she has entered a surreal world where the town has become a refuge for kooks and tourists. It doesn't help that it is also a refuge for the heartbroken and grief stricken. And she will fit in just fine if she can stop reading everyone's mind and heal herself. This book seemed hard to get into but it was worth the effort.
