The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry
The Lace Reader

Lucyspal3, September 1, 2008

This book had some major flaws. In the end the book was about redemption, forgiveness and healing, but the way the reader gets there is too tangled. Other than Rafferty’s past alcohol abuse you never know why he’s so damaged. You only find out in the end why Jack is so damaged with a glimpse in his head, but that glimpse makes him a monster, not a victim.

Did Towner suffer from multiple personalities? Did she suffer from memory loss because of the shock treatment and then made up Lindley to hide her wounds? Did Eva kill herself to awaken Towner?

I felt that the questions left were too many, and the ones answered were too few.
