Book Review: The Girl in the Glass by Susan Meissner

The Girl in the Glass

This may just be the best book I’ve read this year. And I’ve already checked out two more of her books from the library.

Susan Meissner is an incredible writer. Her characters have depth. The story isn’t predictable. The setting of Florence comes alive. From the first page, I knew I was reading the work of a great writer and the entire book was a joy to read.

I loved the main character and the real life struggles she faced–being disappointed by people around her, not knowing if she can trust her own feelings, and trying to make everyone in her life happy. Through all of this, Meg is also overwhelmed by the beauty of Florence and the breathtaking artwork that came out of the Italian Renaissance. Every aspect of the story comes together beautifully.

I will be reading every book by Susan Meissner that I can get my hands on. Someday, I also hope to sit in one of her writing classes. For now I’ll learn all I can from her works.

This is a five-star book easily. A+!

Thank you Water Brook for giving me this copy to review.
