Perfect timing for a bittersweet read like this....
This is a book about a brokenhearted young lady named Kate that flees from Seattle for a tour of Ireland to find herself. She finds herself in a small Irish town (Glenmara) and finds a new place for herself among the women who make lace. There are coincidences that bring people together - but isn't that life - all about being in the right place at the right time? I love the story about the lace, and how the lace making was taught through generations, and how the lace could tell a story. It has made me rethink having my mom teach me how to make lace - although that will mean learning how to crochet, and for that, I am truly skeptical.
This was a lovely quick read. A story full of promise, and a little bit of fancy.
