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?

A short story that carries quite the historical punch!
This book demonstrates the power of purpose and love, how strong belief makes all the difference.
If you have never experienced glass blowing in person,
after reading this novella you will want to see the magic up close.
Hopefully you will also try to practice more kindness in your life.
