Here is Day Two of my teaser posts leading up to the publication of The Ruins of Lae by Iris Anthony from Sourcebooks. Each day until October 2nd, I’ll be providing a little bit of information about one of the characters and a picture of something that represents that character. All of the items will be included in a themed gift basket that one of my readers will win. Keep coming back for a little more each day.
The Ruins of Lace reveals how the magnetic pull of the forbidden can ensnare anyone into its web. Seven different characters will have their lives impacted by lace, some in ways they never could have imagined. Here are their stories.
As the shadows of the night fall, Sister brings out a candle so we can continue working.
But it doesn’t matter for me now. For my eyes are failing me and I only rely on my memory to finish my patterns.
25 years I have been making lace.
Lace is my life. My solace. It is lace that gives my life meaning.
My sister, Heilwich, is going to be rescuing me soon. I must stay quiet about my sight or else my life could be in danger.
But if I’m not making lace then what life do I have anyway?
