The Lace Makers of Glenmara

I am reading this book and I am really enjoying it! The flow of the book is wonderful. I love the descriptions of Ireland. John and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in Ireland 5 years ago and all the descriptions remind me of that wonderful anniversary vacation! I love the characters in the book too. The author just seems to weave the characters and the story together just wonderfully! I would highly recommend this book!


  1. Just the title sounds beautiful!

  2. Sherri, I loved it too. A great story that had me wanting it to be the first of a series.

  3. Sounds like something I'd enjoy reading. It's nice when you have a book that you can relate to and enjoy the scenery all over again.

    Happy reading, Sherri!


  4. I agree with Florence, the title alone sounds beautiful...... I'll have to look for it now.


  5. My mother's people were from Ireland. I've never visited but someday when time permits, I would love to. I'll look for the book.

  6. Thank you for the recommendation, I will check it out. Clarice

  7. It's funny how 2 people can read the same book and have different reactions. While I loved the descriptions of Ireland (and I'm SO jealous that you and John went there!), I just didn't click with the characters or the story that much. I thought it was a good book, but just not my cup of tea. Vanilla/chocolate!


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.

Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
