This book was just great! The picturesque descriptions of Ireland were wonderful. When Kate goes wandering around the countryside following the death of her mother and the betrayal of her boyfriend, she ends up in the Gaelic town of Glenmara in Ireland where a group of women are lace makers. Bernie, who is one of the lace makers, welcomes Kate into her home. The interactions of the women are wonderful and the author provides us a view into the village life. I definitely recommend this book and look forward to reading more by this author!
