4.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent glitzy escapism
In the sequel to Lace, Conran gives us another hit of intelligent glamour and glitz. The first book left us with only tentatively happy endings, and this one picks up immediately by throwing out what we thought we knew.

This review is from: Lace 2 (Paperback)
In the sequel to Lace, Conran gives us another hit of intelligent glamour and glitz. The first book left us with only tentatively happy endings, and this one picks up immediately by throwing out what we thought we knew.

I particularly liked the way this returns to the original stories of the girls at school in Switzerland and re-writes the past in interesting ways. And, once again, this takes intelligent issue with concerns about women's careers, working motherhood, how to balance marriage and independence - albeit from a 1985 perspective.

Recommended for an easy read which combines escapism with sharp wit and intelligence.

This review is from: Lace 2 (Paperback)
Wanted the saga to go on, I love the first book and this second one did not disappoint, I wanted more of the story about Lily and her father and how they resolve the dalliance. /////
