Editorial Reviews

Review

Advance Praise for "The Fifth Petal: "
"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."
DEBORAH HARKNESS, "New York Times "bestselling author of the "All Souls" trilogy
Brunonia Barry s Salem is alive with rich history, and with a unique and colorful cast of characters: witches and healers, lace readers, the well-to-do and the down-and-out. And everyone s got secrets."The Fifth Petal"is a mesmerizing take on the ways the past affects and influences the present. Time isn t linear, says one of the characters, and the way Barry artfully weaves together a modern-day crime, a twenty-five-year-old murder case, and the Salem witch trials, you ll close the book believing that she s absolutely right.
JENNIFER MCMAHON, "New York Times"bestselling author of"The Winter People" and "The Night Sister"
"There is true magic in "The Fifth Petal," whereSalem s dark history of murder threatens to destroy yet one more young woman, a descendant of one of the accused witches. As in "The Lace Reader," Brunonia Barry weaves together ancient myths, modern mysteries and the power and wisdom of a cabal of fearless women who ve been touched by the invisible world."
KATHLEEN KENT, author of "The Heretic s Daughter"
"Brunonia Barry has done it again. If you liked"The Lace Reader," you re going to love her new novel, "The Fifth Petal." A real page-turner about murder and prejudice and love and what s possible and what isn t. Enjoy."
B.A. SHAPIRO, "New York Times "bestselling author of"The Art Forger and The Muralist"
"A seductive combination of suspense, history, myth - with a sprinkling of the supernatural -"The Fifth Petal"is an enormously satisfying mystery novel. Brunonia Barry has created a world that is at once inviting and menacing, populated by characters both warmly familiar and surprising."
ANDREW PYPER, author of"The Damned"and"The Demonologist"
"There are many writers who write wonderful books... then there are those rare writers who make magic. Brunonia Barry proves once again she is a sorcerer. Transported to Salem, I was lost in a Gothic tale that only the author of"The Lace Reader"could have conjured."
M.J. ROSE, "New York Times"bestsellingauthor of"The Secret Language of Stones"
"Written with pens dipped in magic and chills, THE FIFTH PETAL uncovers hidden corners where myth, malevolence, and fervor converge in Salem, Massachusetts. Tendrils from the past and present wrap the complicated characters and the reader s attention until the stunning final sentence. Brunonia Barry weaves miracles."
RANDY SUSAN MEYERS, bestselling author of" The Murderer s Daughters"
""The Fifth Petal"is a brilliant and suspenseful tale that prods at embers still live in a buried past. By weaving together the lost evidence of twoSalemtragedies, Brunonia Barry s novel prompts profound consideration of the respect for history, the importance of resolution, and the power of voice. Highly recommended."
THERESE WALSH, author of"The Moon Sisters"
"Spellbinding! Clear your schedule--this beautifullywritten and seamlessly researched tale is athriller, a romance, and a deeply felt investigation of the witch frenzy that haunts us to this day--and it'sthe book everyone will be buzzing about. Surprising, compelling andprofound--evenrevelatory--it will stay with you long after the last page."
HANK PHILLIPPI RYAN, Agatha, Anthony, andMary HigginsClark award winning author"
