Loved it!
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

Review
Heartbreaking stories of survivors of the genocide in Rwanda. Do not expect that you will understand why this happened even after reading the book. Will there ever be an explanation that makes sense? Only that humankind has proven throughout history that it is capable of incredible and unspeakable evil. Despite this, you will see hope glimmering in the pages. I recommend this book for all readers as an important testimony to history, the lives that were lost, and the resiliency of those that lived.  Get this book!
