The Old Lace Shop is a sad reminder of the role women played in the Victorian Era. The author has created a fantastic tale following Bella White from her deceased husband’s home to a different world. That of businesswoman in a world run by men. She must discover her place in the world while fighting the feelings that are being rekindled for a forgotten beau, Edmund Archer. This tale finds each needing a second chance at the life they were destined to live.
This is very well written and the inclusion of Charles Dickens adds a classic feel that will make this a favorite for many Christmas readings to come.
