map of true places book coverPublisher’s Description

Brunonia Barry, the author of the beloved New York Times and international bestseller, The Lace Reader, delivers her second novel, The Map of True Places, a complex and emotionally compelling novel about finding your true place in the world when you have no map.

After Boston psychotherapist, Zee Finch’s impending marriage falls apart and she loses a bi-polar patient to suicide, she returns to the town of her troubled youth––Salem––to care for her ailing father.  While there, Zee encounters danger as she falls into the puzzle of unraveling the mystery surrounding her own mother’s suicide when Zee was a child and realizes shocking parallels between the death of her mother and that of her patient, Lilly Braedon.  She also finds new love with a man who has a mysterious past, which may or may not be related to Lilly’s death.

The Map of True Places asks fundamental questions about the nature of reality versus storytelling, development of self versus loyalty to family, and how to find your true north.  Barry delivers an atmospheric Salem, Massachusetts setting, remarkable narrative tension, and an unforgettable ending that candy-coats nothing.  Expertly weaving a story of secrets, identity, and love in which a psychotherapist begins to find the strands of her own life in the suicide of a troubled patient, The Map of True Places cements Barry’s place in the ranks of today’s best novelists.
