ah Nora. A super fun chic book for an Irish woman of art to read! Book 1 of the trilogy. I love a quick girlie read from time to time...the unrealistic but tickle your heart love story that races like the pulse of a newly found lover. I particularly enjoyed the description of the land of my blood. Well met. And I further savored the language of the glass blowers passion. I will finish the trilogy on these cold and rainy, very Cork-like, evenings.
