Kate, devastated by her mother’s death and her fiancé’s betrayal, leaves Seattle for Ireland to wander in the land of her ancestors. The struggling designer ends up stuck in a little place called Glenmara and is taken into a circle of lace makers – women struggling with their own personal tragedies. As they teach Kate the basics of lace making, she gives them hope and a new purpose.

I really enjoyed Lace Makers. The characters were real – afflicted by tragedies that most can relate to: a distant husband, a rebellious child, cancer, abuse, and loss. These women aren’t portrayed as superheroes, but they’re strong and capable. Leaning on each other, they find ways to go on, ways to be content.

Any woman would be blessed to have these friends. Definitely recommended.
