The Weaver by Emmi Itaranta

This is the tale of a dreamer.  That sounds good but it wasn’t.   Eliana is a weaver on an island where dreaming is banned.  The Council rules with an iron fist but the dreaming weaver drapes the island in wispy webs of dreams.

The story is also a love story laden with deception and betrayal.   Eliana discovers that Valeria is more and less than she seems.   The oldest citizen on the island has secrets that no one has known for hundreds of years. 

This was an interesting and occasionally confusing plot.  It moved steadily with very deep development of Eliana.  Basically the rest of the characters were supporting parts.

I recommend the book.
