Here is Day Five of my teaser posts leading up to the publication of The Ruins of Lace by Iris Anthony from Sourcebooks. Denis is a man caught in the middle of his society. He’s supposed to find forbidden lace, but why? 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.
That is all I have left to prove to the lieutenant I am worthy of my role as border patrol.
If only I knew which people were smuggling the forbidden lace across the border—I’d stop them.
But no matter how many breads I tear apart, clothing I search, and animals I prod I simply keep coming up short.
Will God have mercy on me and deliver me the enemy?
Or will I soon find myself as desperate as the people I often search?
