Emille Richards writes what I call "a Woman's Book", but I was surprised and extremely pleased with this excellent story which is well written with an intricate plot, a page turner in the true tense. Its a fascinating tale of the tangled race relations and complex history of Louisiana. And although its a romance novel, it is not porny.
Iron Lace is one of the first Emilie Richards books that I have read. Wow! I loved it. Great story line that keeps you right with the story. I could picture the characters and scenery vividly in my mind. The civil rights line of the story was right on and the story was smoothly written. Very interesting book and cast of characters.
