I really enjoyed Laura Frantz' latest historical romance novel, "The Lacemaker." Lady Elisabeth or "Liberty" has a wonderful life, she is a woman of position, engaged to a man who is prominent and a good match from the aspect of both of their positions. However, this is a time of tension and unrest and is she willing to stay with her roots and the nice life that she is living or will she make a choice and follow the other side.
This is a story rich with historical detail of the American Revolution era and the unrest between England and the colonies and the beginning of independence for this country. Laura does a great job at bringing this time period to life and the emotions that are high and the struggle that so many faced with choosing a life that has always been or an unknown future that could be scary but full of so many opportunities. I loved the characters as well in this book and their interactions. Of course Liberty was a great main character and she was fascinating and easy to connect with and Noble was another great character and I loved their interactions and how he would fight for what he believed in.
This is a great book and one not to miss if you are a fan of historical fiction!
