    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!

    I 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.

    An engrossing, if a little slow, story from an intriguing part of history

    Lady Elisabeth's transformation from pampered darling of society to Liberty, simple lacemaker and then to the wife of a Patriot revolutionary is dramatic but this tale is so well and beautifully told it's believable. Elisabeth's mother has been a Patriot for some time which really infuriates her British Lieutenant Governor father who frequently sends her away to various places for her 'fragile health' (which I never figured out if she had health problems or not) and threatens to have her thrown in a mental hospital. That doesn't stop the mother, who pens patriotic poems for the revolution. She's a smaller character in the story but we can see where Liberty gets her gumption. Noble, although not perfect, is true to his name the whole story through.

    The story is well written and the history in it is engrossing, even if the story is somewhat slow and there are one or two slightly uncomfortable over-shares. Because of the overall content I would recommend this to an older teen and up. I loved that I learned a lot about a period of American history that I didn't know much about.

    Noble and Lady Elisabeth! Williamsburg and the American Revolution! That should be enough to get you to pick up this book if the cover hasnt already won you over. Another lyrical and historical beautifully written book by this author. I loved everything about this book and learning about the history in Williamsburg at the beginning of the Revolutionary War was a treat. And Noble! Wow! You wont regret reading this book. I savored and enjoyed every page. I hope you will too! I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher. I was not required to give a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.
