Review
I read this story many times and it never stops inspiring me. A hopeful story about how one person's determined effort to do the right thing was a gift to a countless number of people...many of whom were not yet born. Read this story....though it is short, it will stay with you forever.

Review
You won't be able to put this fascinating book down. It is well written and weaves a tale about an interesting family from Salem, MA, whose ability to read lace is passed on from one generation to another. Their psychic eccentricities make this book one you won't easily forget. Learn about the Whitney family and the tragedies that befall them. Will knowing the future effect that future? What happens when the police get involved with trying to find a lost woman who is a friend of one of the family members? The suspense will keep you turning pages. For her first book she did an excellent job. I can't wait for her next one.  Get this book
