Praise for Brunonia Barry:

'An unusual and beguiling literary thriller about a fascinating family of women. The setting of the tight-knit Salem community, still haunted by a heritage of witchcraft and persecution, is marvellously evoked. Enchanting, whimsical and menacing by turns and with a brightly drawn oddball cast it's an exhilarating and ultimately uplifting read.' Rachel Hore, 'The Memory Garden'

'A gorgeously written literary novel that's also a doozy of a thriller, capped with a jaw-dropping denouement that will leave even the most careful reader gasping … a major feat' Chicago Tribune

'Gripping … a marvellously bizarre cast of characters (living and dead) in a uniquely colorful town' Washington Post

'[A] richly imagined saga of passion, suspense and magic' Time

'Blithe and creepy in equal measure. [Barry] captures [Salem] evocatively and often wittily. What is real in "The Lace Reader"? What is not? … There are clues planted everywhere …' New York Times

'A spine-tingler … "The Lace Reader" is tailor-made for a boisterous night at the book club' People
