The Glassblower of Murano - Marina Fiorato

This is a fabulous book. A true romantic, historical novel. This is THE book to take away with you on holiday, or for an indulgent read. It has a dual time story and all the atmosphere of wonderful Venice. Having been to Venice and to Murano, it was fascinating to be given an insight into this ancient craft.
The characters are well drawn, and there is plenty of pace to keep you wanting to read more. I finished this in just 3 days! Oh and I cried , old romantic that I am!
This book comes out in May. Thank you to Beautiful Books for allowing me to read this excellent book in advance. No wonder it has been a best seller in Europe!
