    RT Top Pick for January 2018Frantz once again pens a novel so rich in historical detail that readers will become immersed in the setting and time period. The sights, sounds, smells and atmosphere of 1775 Colonial America are beautifully woven into a captivating romance story. And ah, the romance! The relationship development between Elisabeth (Liberty) and Noble causes both sighs and goosebumps as it progresses. There are many instances of peril,...

    I adore every book written by Laura Frantz. Much to my delight this lovely book arrived in the mail early! I have met Laura and after meeting her it makes me love her books all the more, she is the sweetest most down to earth lady! Anywho, this book is wonderful! I LOVE this time period of 1775 and the characters are very well written. Elisabeth is such a unique character, I am not sure how to explain but she is not what you would expect. Honestl...

    "Therefore my harp is turned to mourning and my flute to the sound of those who weep."Daughter of the wealthy British lieutenant governor of Virginia, Lady Elisabeth Lawson has never truly known the meaning of the name her mother once loving bestowed upon her; "Liberty". Impending nuptials manage to consume nearly all of her attention, even though her groom has been noticeably absent; humiliating both of them by sending his cousin, Noble Rynallt,...

    Black and white. That's how Elisabeth Lawson's world can be described at the beginning of the book. Everything in her life is determined by her father - who she'll marry, where she can go, where her loyalties are. He's taken her freedom, her happiness and her mother away from her. There are few spots in her life where her father hasn't shown his fisted demanding hand. Basically, her music, her lacemaking, her gardening, and her faith. And, once h...

    Anwylyd. *sigh* Goodness me, I'm shook. What a tale- what a romance- what characters. Laura has captivated me with yet another of her gloriously whimsical and utterly immsersive novels. I'm used to her books being set in the Frontier time/era/location and loved them (I'm not even a frontier type of reader but she turned me into one, ha), but she seamlessly wrote a Colonial-era read, leading into the War of Independence, and had me fall in love wi...

    A sweeping tale with amazing historical detail! The beginning of the book started out a little slow for my taste, but layer upon layer was served up into a delicious story that leaves the reader satisfied. Noble was definitely a swoon-worthy hero in my eyes (I think I have a thing for heroes that use terms of endearment in another language) and Libby grew into a gentle strength that she wasn't aware she possessed at the beginning. I've always wan...

    “These are times in which loyalties are continually in question. You do not know whom you can trust,” Liberty recalls her father’s words in Laura Frantz’s novel, The Lacemaker.~ What ~This four-hundred-and-thirteen-page paperback targets those interested in a historical romance set during the war for America’s independence. With no profanity, topics of gambling, drunkenness, and war may not be appropriate for immature readers. The endin...

    3.5 starsThis book was what I'd call a "gentle" read. It had its moments of suspense, but ultimately it was a quiet (though pleasant!) read for me. I'm an American girl, of course, but I'll be the first to admit that books set during the American Revolution tend to be terribly biased and oversimplified; thankfully, this one was a bit more nuanced. Perhaps not as much as it could have been, but it was more even-handed than other books set during t...
