really liked it

Not sure how I came across this book title, but put it on hold at the library and got it in a few months.

I enjoyed the story about making lace by hand and that it had been forbidden to own lace in France at one time, causing, of course, smuggling. Told by 7 characters, one reads each point of view. The ending may seem ambiguous, but on checking the author's blog http://www.irisanthony.com/index.html, she gives a couple of hints of pages to re-read before returning to the end. AHA. I had not made any connection in the story but it did make sense. She has also done a 'my book the movie' entry on who she might see as actors if her book became a movie http://mybookthemovie.blogspot.ca/201...

Who is this author Iris Anthony in her other persona?

I was surprised that my library had listed this book under Adult Inspirational Fiction/Christian Fiction instead of Historical Fiction (have emailed them to reconsider).
