"Charmingly wry yet evocative, with details and descriptions both telling and vivid. Boston Globe This hopeful, comforting novel is a testament to the power of taking chances and starting fresh and a reminder that life can bring joy after sorrow." Miami Herald From the author of Snow in July comes The Lace Makers of Glenmara: a charming, moving story, written with a delicate touch (Joanne Harris), as a struggling young fashion designer journeys to Ireland to mend a broken heart, and helps a group of local lace makers change their livesand her own. Fans of the strong feminine voices of contemporary Irish literature such as Maeve Binchy (Nights of Rain and Stars, Tara Road) and Cecilia Ahern (P.S. I Love You, Where Rainbows End) will fall in love with The Lace Makers of Glenmara.
