Her friendship with an unschooled lace maker's daughter immerses her in a controversial friendship Jul 6, 2005
Twelve-year-old Juli doesn't want a dowry nor the dancing lessons her mother covets for her: Hungarian girls don't need these things anymore, Juli insists, and she dreams of a career over marriage. Her friendship with an unschooled lace maker's daughter immerses her in a controversial friendship, the problems of a very different family life, and eventual defiance of her mother's dreams in The Lace Dowry's provocative story.
