The Glassblower delighted this reader as much, if not more, than some of Laurie Alice Eakes other novels. This book is truly a work of art. From the first page, she captured my imagination creating a vivid tale of love and hope. What a fantastic book! Can't wait to read more of her work, although I've read quite a few of her books already. Did I mention she's a favorite author? Why? Because her books never disappoint. What a good book! Loved "The Glassblower".
