Yet another wonderful story from Laura Frantz. This one is set in Virginia at the beginning of the Revolutionary War. The heroine is a rich and pampered young woman of privilege whose family is torn apart by the coming war. The hero is all that a hero should be, handsome, gallant, and committed to his cause. Both will face changes. Both have decisions to make. But the war won’t leave them unscathed.
I especially enjoyed the hero in this story. His background is Welsh, as was a large part of my family when they immigrated here in the 1600s. I enjoyed the Welsh influence in the words, the bits of history, and even the food. All those details added depth to the overall story.
If you like historical romance with vivid and rich history woven through it, you’ll enjoy “The Lacemaker.”
