This was a really interesting book--not necessarily for the story (although, it is kind of cute), but for the historical aspects. It takes place in Budapest in 1933 and 1934, when the protagonist is a young girl. Knowing my history as I do, I wonder what happened to the family during WWII and the aftermath of communism. What happens to the lace? Does she actually end up getting married? What comes next for the lace-makers of Halas?
