When Jewish glassmakers and their families flee the powerful Doge of Venice, the cost of their freedom is three hundred and fifty-seven mirrors—the creation of the magnificent Hall of Mirrors in Versailles. But the Doge sends assassins to pick off the artists, one by one. Can Ruth Telfin, the mute widow of the head glassmaker, save her people?

bookreview
The Glassblower’s Wife by Joanna Campbell Slan is a short, historical mystery that really intrigued me from the beginning. I was very interested in the story since I don’t know much about the art of glass blowing. This short story does a nice job of weaving historical fact with historical fiction and really presents the mystery nicely. The story was well-written and I enjoyed it. I felt like the author did a very good job of transporting me to this time and place in history, and that is always key in historical fiction.

The Glassblower’s Wife by Joanna Campbell Slan is a quick read that holds your attention from start to finish. If you enjoy historical fiction with a bit of mystery thrown in, then definitely read this short story.

    I really love historical fiction. I grew up near Cedar Point amusement park. One of my favorite things to do year after year was visit their Frontier Town to watch the various craftspeople at work. The glassblower always fascinated me.
