“Exhausted from devastating losses in every aspect of her life, young fashion designer and seamstress Kate Robinson travels to Ireland, making good on a promise to her dying mother to visit their ancestral home, a tiny, close-knit fishing community. There, she joins a group of lace makers, both learning from them and using her talents to reimagine their craft. Full of finely developed characters, whom you will come to know and appreciate.”
— JK Campbell, Colorado State Univ. Bookstore, Fort Collins, CO
"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 lives--and 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.
“Barbieri’s deft writing style is charmingly wry yet evocative, with details and descriptions both telling and vivid. . . . . A sweet summertime yarn [that] . . . provides a lovely, leisurely escape to the bucolic charms of the Emerald Isle.”
-Karen Campbell, Boston Globe
