Historical romance favorite Laura Frantz is back with a suspenseful story of love, betrayal, and new beginnings. With her meticulous eye for detail and her knack for creating living, breathing characters, Frantz continues to enchant historical fiction readers who long to feel they are a part of the story.
My Thoughts: You know when you pick up a Frantz novel that you’re about to be treated to something saturated in historical detail and a plot that twists and turns around every bend. The Lacemaker was certainly one of those novels. Although I struggled in the very beginning while being introduced to a great number of names and characters, I did fall into a groove and the story really took off for me. As a history lover, I really enjoyed getting a look at what was going in the months leading up to the Revolutionary War.
Rating and Recommendation: I’m giving The Lacemaker 4.5 stars and recommending it to those who enjoy Historical Christian Fiction or Revolutionary War Fiction.
