The Glassblower of Murano
When I first realized that this was another present/past story, I was annoyed. It seems that this technique is too popular currently and not always done very successfully. But, the writing did capture my interest, so, delightedly, I persisted with
it. And, I am truly glad that I did. I is a wonderfully crafted book with a number of twists that very satisfactorily web the entire tale. I would suggest reading "Vivaldi's Virgins" as a companion piece with this. The two together make a most rewarding duo.
