Review: The Lacemaker by Laura Frantz

About the Book

When colonial Williamsburg explodes like a powder keg on the eve of the American Revolution, Lady Elisabeth "Liberty" Lawson is abandoned by her fiancé and suspected of being a spy for the hated British. No one comes to her aid save the Patriot Noble Rynallt, a man with formidable enemies of his own. Liberty is left with a terrible choice. Will the Virginia belle turned lacemaker side with the radical revolutionaries, or stay true to her English roots? And at what cost?

Historical romance favorite Laura Frantz is back with a suspenseful story of love, betrayal, and new beginnings. With her meticulous eye for detail and her knack for creating living, breathing characters, Frantz continues to enchant historical fiction readers who long to feel they are a part of the story.

My Review

Four Stars

The Lacemaker was a fascinating historical fiction set right before the start of the Revolutionary War. It follows Elisabeth 'Liberty' Lawson, a young lady caught between her father's Tory ways and her mother's Patriot beliefs, accused of being a spy and abandoned by her friends and family.

I really enjoyed reading this fictional tale set during such a pivotal time in our country's history. There were so many interesting historical details, facts, and prominent historical figures woven seamlessly throughout. I became completely immersed in this novel, in 1775 Colonial Virginia. I felt like I was right there with the characters. And what amazing characters they were! Libby had to endure so much, but handled everything with such grace and strength. She's such an admirable young lady. And Noble! His name fits him to a T. He's an honorable, good, and yes, noble man. He's definitely giving Silas Ballantyne (the hero in Love's Reckoning) a run for his money as my favorite Frantz leading man.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and voluntarily reviewed it. All thoughts and comments are my honest opinion.
