Readers who have been to Venice will appreciate "going back" through the authors vivid descriptions. One could feel the heat as the glassblowers did their work. Really enjoyed the book.

  "Intriguing read" by meredithds (see profile) 09/20/11

I enjoyed the suspense of the story, as well as the beautiful descriptions of VEnice and glassblowing. The only thing I disliked was the author's use of frequent italicized "thoughts" of the point of view characters. They were set off in separate paragraphs and felt intrusive in the narrative. Otherwise, waht a fun story spanning the generations.
