5.0 out of 5 stars Iron lace that entwines a family tree in New Orleans, March 23, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Iron Lace (Paperback)
Aurore Gerritsen, an aristocratic woman and owner of the Gulf Coast Shipping enterprise in the 1960's New Orleans area surprises journalist Phillip, a young black man with a request for a visit. She asks him to write her biography for personal use for her and her family. While surprised, Phillip accepts. We see Aurore's story in flashbacks interspersed with her present day. From the terrible hurricane that changed her family's life and destroyed her father's second family we see the difficult outcomes that choices can make on people and their families. The story is a rich history of New Orleans at the time and how race played a key role in the area. Aurore's story is filled with love, tragedy, and several surprising outcomes. We also get to see how her story affects Phillip and changes his outlook and his relationships with his mother and girlfriend. A wonderful, spellbinding story, with more to follow in the sequel.
