The Lace Makers of Glenmara
"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 lives—and her own.
"You can always start again," Kate Robinson's mother once told her. "All it takes is a new thread." Overwhelmed by heartbreak and loss, Kate follows her mother's advice and flees to Ireland, her ancestral homeland, hoping to reinvent herself. In the seaside hamlet of Glenmara, the struggling twenty six-year-old fashion designer quickly develops a bond with members of the local lace-making society—and soon she and the lace makers are creating a line of exquisite lingerie, their skilled hands bringing flowers, Celtic dragons, nymphs, saints, kings, and queens to life with painterly skill. The circle also offers them something more: the strength to face their desires and fears. But not everyone in this charming, fading Gaelic village welcomes Kate, and a series of unexpected events threatens to unravel everything the women have worked so hard for.
Fans of the strong feminine voices of contemporary Irish literature such as Maeve Binchy and Cecilia Ahern will fall in love with The Lace Makers of Glenmara.
