Mama's Reading -The Lace Makers of Glenmara

It's summertime and that (hopefully) means that life slows down a bit and there is more time in the day to relax.

If that's the case, and you're looking for a relaxing good read, it's time you picked up a copy of The Lace Makers of Glenmara, by Heather Barbieri.

The threads of a new life

begin with a single stitch . . .

The novel is set in the small Ireland town called Glenmara. The main character, an artistic fashion designer named Kate Robinson is running from her past in American. She has fled to the land of her ancestors searching for a fresh start in a new place.

As her luck may have it, she stumbles into the tiny village of Glenmara and finds fast friends with a smart group of ladies, the "lace makers". As days turn into weeks, they teach her how to work lace and create beauty out of nothing. In return, Kate gives each of the lace makers something back, something that changes them forever.

What I love most about the book is the character development. How we get to know Kate and each of the ladies in the lace society. Through many different stories from the past they all are beautifully intertwined into one main journey, almost effortlessly.

I really enjoyed this Novel. It's the kind of kind of book that is meant to be read relaxing in the hammock or kicking you feet up on the couch.

Get it yourself! The Lace Makers of Glenmara is in stock and can be purchased on Amazon. Visit author Heather Barbieri's website to pick up more information. Want to read more reviews of this great book? Visit MotherTalk to read what others are saying...
