bestselling author BRUNONIA BARRY presents her new novel THE FIFTH PETAL
Bestselling author of The Lace Reader and The Map of True Places Brunonia Barry visits Jabberwocky this Friday evening to talk about her new novel The Fifth Petal.
It is sure to be a delightful evening for everyone. Her latest novel weaves together a modern mystery, a 25 year old unsolved murder, and the seventeenth century Salem Witch trials in a seamless time twisting blend of ancient and modern. Absolutely captivating!
a Booklist Starred Review says, "The superlative Barry creates a vividly eerie, time-bending landscape that stretches back and forth between the Salem witch trials, the Goddess Murders, and the present-day mystery ..... a spooky, multilayered medley of mysteries."
DEBORAH HARKNESS, New York Times bestselling author of the All Souls trilogy says, ""In contemporary Salem, a murder has taken place, with roots that reach back to the seventeenth-century witch trials. Filled with twists and turns, as well as ancient tradition and modern mystery, Barry’s story has deft pacing, a marvelous sense of place, and a quirky cast of characters. The Fifth Petal is another haunting tale by the author of The Lace Reader where past and present collide."
