A breathtaking debut about love and war, and the battle to save a precious legacy.
‘A beautifully written and utterly compelling story of love and war and resistance that shines a light onto a dark and tragic period of history while also illuminating the enduring power of love and friendship. Unforgettable and emotionally wrenching, and as exquisite as the lace the women of the story weave.’ —Kate Forsyth
‘From the very first line, I was captivated by this tale of two very different, but equally heroic, women. There is beauty to be found everywhere: in the writing, in the women’s friendship, in the tragedy, and in the motif of the lace shawls, which weaves the story together.’—Natasha Lester, author of Her Mother’s Secret and A Kiss from Mr Fitzgerald
‘A rich, textured and evocatively told story of love, loss and the ties that bind. The setting is exotic and intriguing and presents a unique side of the war that not many authors have yet explored. I found it difficult to put this haunting novel down and it will stay with me for a long time to come, I’m certain. Lauren Chater is a bold new force in Australian historical fiction. Bravo on a glorious debut!’—Tess Woods, author of Beautiful Messy Love and Love at First Flight
