Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
The Glassblower by Petra Durst-Benning is the story of the Steinmann sisters - Johanna, Ruth, and Marie – attempting to survive after the death of their father. The history of nineteenth century Germany and descriptions of glassblowing are fascinating. My least favorite part of the book is unfortunately the sisters themselves for the focus of the book becomes their relationships with the men they encounter along the way instead of their endeavors for independence.
