The Lacemaker by Laura Frantz

35069201The Lacemaker

My Thoughts:
The Lacemaker by Laura Frantz is a historical masterpiece. The writing in this book is exquisite! I have never read a book with more words that were descriptive, detailed and capturing as this one. The Lacemaker can be read in one sitting or sat down with through multiple sittings as she takes the reader on an adventure of a lifetime bringing readers to Williamsburg, Virginia leading up to the American Revolution. 
Lady Elizabeth Lawson is abandoned by her family and her fiance. Not suspecting that Liberty would be in support of the revolution, lacemaking becomes her weapon of survival. However, with not picking a side, could this put her at the greatest risk of all? 
This book is rich in detail, romance, plot and history. The book comes to life with the plot being steady, the book being dangerous and of course twists at the turn of each page. I was at the halfway point when I felt deeply in love with the story. The complexity of this book is an absolute readers dream not because it's a hard book to read, but because of how well thought through this is. Weaving in faith, history, romance and accuracy is hard to pull off, but Ms. Frantz pull off a literary masterpiece. This book will continue to see high reviews and will make the best seller list. 
This is a book to read again and again to see more details with each read. I would give this book more than 5 stars if possible. Purchase a copy today, you won't be disappointed.
