Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wished for something more from this story... There are two storylines - one in present day where you follow Nora and one in seventeenth century where you follow Corradino. Both are trying to survive their personal challenges but both have a flair for glassblowing as their passion. But will history repeat itself, find out to see what happens with Nora and Corradino. (the story/characters a lacking in development which is sad, as it has some great bones to chew on).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad overall Wasn't really a fan of the style of writing but having read Marina Firoato's The Bottecelli Secret (which was one I couldnt put down), I know her style gets better. Enjoyed the story, overall a good read. Good for a light, quick read over a weekend. Happy reading :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from evocative debut novel The modern day characters and plot line are a little flat, a little predictable... but the story of Corradino the glassblower is fascinating and leaves you wanting more. The real magic of the story, however, is Venice itself. The author evokes Venice clearly, turning the city into a character all its own, magical and brooding. A beautiful novel, here's hoping the author grows into her writing. I look forward to reading her next novel.
