The Lace Reader, by Brunonia Barry

I most enjoyed the detailed descriptions of the local settings in this novel set in late 20th century Salem, Mass. Much of the story takes place around downtown Salem, its harbor and the harbor islands. The information that the author works into the plot about Ipswich lace and the women who produced it in the 1820’s was also fascinating.

RATING: * * * A good read
