The Map of True Places

The Map of True Places - Brunonia Barry Zee Finch goes from stealing boats as an adolescent to being a respected psychotherapist as an adult. After the death of a patient she decides to return home to Salem. Although she makes this move to try and deal with things in her life, it only seems to make matters worse as her fiancée calls off the engagement just as she is discovering that her father, ailing with Parkinson’s disease is more ill than she anticipated.

This book had many similarities to THE LACE READER, Barry’s previous book, but I found I enjoyed this one more. It was focused on relationships, caring and healing and that loved ones are often a more important part of our lives than we admit.
