Many years ago, times were hard in all of Ireland, so when passage to America becomes available, Fiona and her family travel to Chicago. They find work in domestic service to pay back their passage, and at night Fiona turns tangles of thread into a fine, glorious lace. Then when the family is separated, it is the lace that Fionaâs parents follow to find her and her sister and bring the family back together. And it is the lace that will always provide Fiona with memories of Ireland and of her motherâs words: âIn your heart your true home resides, and it will always be with you as long as you remember those you love.â
This generational story from the family of Patricia Polaccoâs Irish father brims with the same warmth and heart as the classic The Keeping Quilt and The Blessing Cup, which Kirkus Reviews called âdeeply affectingâ in a starred review, and embraces the comfort of family commitment and togetherness that Patricia Polaccoâs books are known for.
About: An Irish family stays together with the help of Fionaâs talent for making one-of-a-kind lace in this heartwarming immigration story from the New York Times bestselling creator of The Keeping Quilt.
