    Named for a flower whose blood-red sap possesses the power both to heal and poison, Bloodroot is a stunning fiction debut about the legacies of magic and madness, faith and secrets, passion and loss that haunt one family across the generations, from the Great Depression to today. The novel is told in a kaleidoscope of seamlessly woven voices and centers around an incendiary romance that consumes everyone in its path.

    Martha Trupiano says: "Amazing story"
    "Amusing, but not riveting"
    Overall

    Descriptions really pop; felt like I was living among the characters, but at times, the plot felt characterized and too familiar. Performers were stellar... Nice story, but not one that kept me sitting in my car to hear the end of the chapter.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Barbara says: "A feast for the mind and imagination"
    "Hurry up, please"
    Overall

    Dear Ms. Harkness: thank you for writing this fabulous book. Now, hurry up and turn out another!

    Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction.

    B.J. says: "Good, but with reservations"
    "A new favorite"
    Overall

    Want a book that will take you away, make you think, feel, laugh and worry... and ultimately be frustrated the book ended? This is it.

    Story

    Rachel Morgan is a runner with the Inderland Runner Services, apprehending law-breakers throughout Cincinnati. She's also a witch, one of the many Inderlanders who revealed themselves after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 50 percent of humanity. Witches, warlocks, vampires, werewolves: the creatures of dreams and nightmares have lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But now they've stopped hiding, and nothing will be the same.

    Patti says: "wildly entertaining"
    "Torturous narrator"
    Overall

    Avoid this 'reader' at all costs! Over played, 'snarky' when there's no need to sound it, heavy handed. All the characters sounded alike with the only difference being pitch or nasality. Decent story? IDK...couldn't stand the reader long enough to find out.

    Towner Whitney, the self-confessed unreliable narrator of The Lace Reader, hails from a family of Salem women who can read the future in the patterns in lace, and who have guarded a history of secrets going back generations. But the disappearance of two women brings Towner home to Salem and the truth about the death of her twin sister to light.

    A User says: "Difficult but good"
    "Compelling but not addictive"
    Overall

    Great performance by Barry--lilting voice but not sing-song. Didn't grate on my nerves. Story was terrific with a bit of a twist. Characters well drawn and sympathetic (even Cal!) I'll look for my by the author and the reader!
