KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A vibrant story that brings history to lifeApril 23, 2018KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Oh, let's just cut to the chase and start with the hero since I'm that twitterpated over Noble. Fainting couches, fans, smelling salts - a full stock of swoon recovery items are a definite necessity before embarking on this historical romance. Because Noble is one of the most romantical heroes I've ever encountered in fiction. And he really does live up to his name. Patriotic. Idealistic. Decent and kind. A man who doesn't take faith for granted. A true gentleman back in the day when that actually meant something! I could go on but I'm in danger of melting into a puddle as I relive those exquisite moments of Noble murmuring Welsh endearments in my...er Liberty's...ear. Thud - and pass the smelling salts please.
Then there's Liberty -- on the verge of entering into a loveless marriage, ever her father's obedient pawn. A sleeping beauty in need of awakening. Love the parallels between her personal quest for independence set against the backdrop of a nation's quest for freedom.
Frantz blends fact and fiction into a vibrant story that brings history to life. Real life heroes take their place on the page next to fictional ones as she delivers a rich, multi-layered tale of faith and freedom.
AngiOakley5 Stars Out Of 5Happy ReaderApril 21, 2018AngiOakleyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Lacemaker by Laura Frantz is a breath of Historical fresh air.

Once again, Ms. Frantz has delivered an excellent account of what life could have been like in the eighteenth century. If you love history, youll love The Lacemaker.

PatsdreamHuntsville, ALAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Action Packed on the Eve of the American RevolutionFebruary 27, 2018PatsdreamHuntsville, ALAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 0Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Do you like historical romance set about the time of the American Revolution? 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.
