About the Book
Andre Garner, up-and-coming glassmaker, thought the trip to the island was worth the risk. He’s been warned the place is full of mystery, that the old woman living there is peculiar and anything can happen.
Yet the Delacroix glass collection is the stuff of fables. To contribute to it could make his career and set him up for a very long time.
But soon the stories and legends of the past pull him in, he and the beautiful girl he didn’t expect to find there. Trapped together, unable to escape, he finds the most valuable thing inside isn’t the glass at all.
Glass by Suzanne D. Williams is a wonderful story that kept me reading until I finished the book when I should have been doing other things. Andre Garner is a glassmaker who is becoming well know for his work and he has been summoned to the Delacroix mansion which is located on an island that can only be reached by ferry. The matriarch of the Delacroix family wants Andre to make a special piece of glass to complete the rare glass collection of her late husband. When Andre arrives at the mansion, he meets the granddaughter, Cerise, who is more or less trapped there with her domineering grandmother. The only other people living on the island are the maid and the boat driver. As soon as Andre reaches the house, he realizes that things are not quite what they seem and then he learns that his father and Cerise’s father were best friends. The mystery and suspense gets more interesting and sometimes frightening with each passing hour.
Again Suzanne has written a great story and all elements of the story are very well developed. The characters were so real that I felt as if I were right there on the island and living through their troubles with them. Scenes were so very well described that I could almost feel the cold spray of the water as Andre was being taken to the island. All the action taking place in the mansion had me right in the middle for it was so well done. Dialogue between the characters was well crafted and at times I wanted to jump into the conversations and give my opinion. I really appreciated that Andre stood up for his moral beliefs and in so doing helped Cerise to change her life. The plot had several twists and turns and quite a bit of suspense but at the end all the subplots were skillfully tied up into a neat and happy ending.
I highly recommend this book to everyone who likes a good Christian story with a good deal of suspense and mystery and a happy ending with a surprise.
Thanks to the author, Suzanne D. Williams, for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
