    The Lace Weaver

    This may be fiction however the few things told to e by my mother are a 'part' of this book. The town house in Tartu, the farm in the country, the forest, family and friends, singing, and watching my mother knitting . Including nupps. What was not told was the terror and the escape from Tartu.

    The lace weaver.

    I enjoyed this book even though it is set in a dark time in their lives. Well written and sensitive. So pleased those traditions survived through such brave and heroic people who have had little or no recognition over the years.

    The Lace Weaver

    There are so many words to describe this beautiful story but all would fall short of doing it justice. The author has created a wonderful read, cleverly weaving together two women from very different lives and circumstances bringing them together and enriching the story as they fight for their survival. The finely knitted shawls are the common factor with each chapter designated a name of a pattern. Estonia as with many surrounding countries of the time is in the grip of the Communist Russian invasion. Tartu is where Kati and brother Jacob live with their parents on their farm where they struggle to feed themselves due to the demands of the Russians who confiscate practically all that the farm produces. With the small amount of sheep wool leftover after shearing Kati along with her grandmother and the knitting group are able to sell their knitted items at the town’s market. Kati’s father is a compliant man but eventually through circumstances he and his wife are killed by the Russians. Jacob and Kati on the run live in the forest along with many others in similar circumstances. Jacob joins the militia group where Oskar, childhood friend and now love interest for Kati fight the Russians. Hitler’s German army starts to make an impact on the Russians in Estonia who in turn begin to forcibly remove all residents via trains in cattle cars. This is where Lydia, a Russian along with her nursemaid/companion find themselves separated from each other.
