The Lacemaker – Laura Frantz
Laura Frantz has a way with words. I teach history to elementary students and I can see how much research she puts into her works. This is the story of Liberty Lawson and Noble Rynallt. They are thrown together by her intended, his cousin during the beginnings of the American Revolution. Liberty’s rather is a devout Royalist and her mother is a Patriot. Where do you think Liberty’s leanings will fall? She has to take to her roots of lacemaking when she is left alone and destitute. She has a character beyond most young women of her time.
Noble is a Patriot, who isn’t interested in finding a wife during the turmoil where he finds himself a leader. I love how this story stays true historically. I love how it mentions what happened to the slaves and indentured during this upheaval of life as they knew it.
Love this book! Read it!
