If so the The Lacemaker is a must read. The time is right before the war between England and the Colonies. Elizabeth's father is the Lt. Govenor of Virginia. She has a mother that supports the Patriots. Elizabeth is caught when the turmoil begins. Her home is ransacked, her father deserted her when he fled Virginia, her mother is in England, her fiance' deserts her and she is left at the mercy of the looters. Her fiance' cousin comes to her rescue but he's a Patriot. Elizabeth's father is a Tory. The action will keep you turning the pages.
You will find some historic characters making an appearance, you will see how both sides feel and react to the changing times. There is danger, spies, intrigue, a broken engagement, a touch of romance. I discovered Laura Frantz as an author through the Book Club Network. She caught my attention and I've been a fan ever since. She does her research on the era and brings it to life. The characters rub shoulders with the greats but are always on the fringe and still in the middle of the action. The characters show their strength, weaknesses and faith through the trials they go through. I can honestly say I've never been disappointed in any of Laura's books. I've read most of them.
I preordred The Lacemaker (as I do all of Laura's books) and no one asked me to leave a review. I bought this book and all opinions are my own. I only leave reviews on books that I truly enjoy. Laura Frantz's style of writing always grabs my attention and keeps it. Not only do I recommend this book I recommend any book by Laura Frantz.
JaquelynAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5It really is that good...February 26, 2018JaquelynAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I had to read this book to know if it was as good as everyone is saying it is. I can honestly say, they were all telling the truth! I was riveted from the very first page and didnt want to stop reading. The attention to detail transported me back in time and I couldnt get enough. Franz made me love the characters and hold my breath in anticipation a time or two. It was amazing being able to visit a time when our country was being formed, and imagine a little what life would have been like. Family turning against each other would be such a difficult thing to bear, yet thats often how war can be. I cant wait to see what Franz writes next, somehow I know I need to read it as well. I received a copy of this book from the publisher, and was in no way forced to post a review. All opinions expressed are my own.

Ahh! At last, I have finished reading The Lacemaker. I read it slowly to thoroughly enjoy each breathtaking scene. Laura Frantz's books never disappoint and this, her ninth book, is a stunner.
Lady Elisabeth struggles to find her place in Colonial Williamsburg at the first start of the Revolutionary War. Her own father becomes an enemy. She is left homeless and penniless, relying on mending clothes and using her talent of beautiful lace-making to make her way alone in the world. But she is not alone; she has her Heavenly Father to watch over her. And, also, she has a handsome, tenacious, kind, and loving Patriot to join in the watch. He calls her by the Welsh name Anwylyd, which means beloved. Their love story is tender and joyous. This book sings with historical detail and details of all kinds. No one can describe a scene, setting, costume, or character as well as Laura Frantz! I give this book 5 out of 5 Stars ~ I wish I could give it more!
Karen KlepsteenSouth DakotaAge: 35-44Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Love and Devotion on the eve of the RevolutionFebruary 13, 2018Karen KlepsteenSouth DakotaAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I found The Lacemaker to be an incredible story of love, growth, and devotion. Liberty's circumstances at the beginning of the story are ones of wealth and privilege. While she has a kind heart, she is nave to the dangers growing around her. When her life is drastically changed practically overnight, she rises to the challenge in a most admirable way. I appreciate her ability to adapt and willingness to work hard, despite her pampered upbringing.
Noble is a Patriot and a true gentleman, coming to Liberty's aid when she has no one to whom she can turn. He doesn't judge or condemn her for her upbringing and instead follows the Bible's admonition to "looketh on the heart," and not on outward appearances. It such a sweet, gradual love story, and I loved watching them grow together in faith and love! I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Virginia's history and appreciates a sweet love story.
