In “The Girl in the Glass” by Susan Meissner we meet Meg. Meg’s grandmother grew up in Florence and when she was a child she was painted in front of a statue and Meg has always been drawn to the painting and to Florence. Meg’s father promised her that he would take her to Florence someday but he never comes through on his promise. When she finds out that he stole the money and bought her ticket she goes to Florence in hope of finding her father and getting the truth out of him. Meg soon finds herself all alone in a foreign country. Before Meg left the states she was told about Sofia. Sofia is an aspiring writer who hopes that Meg will help get her memoirs published. Sofia introduces Meg to the beauty of Florence. It is everything she dreamed but things are not what they seem with Sofia. Sofia claims to be the last surviving member of the Medici family and that a Medici princess, Nora, talks to her through the paintings and statues in Florence. Also while in Italy, Meg meets Lorenzo. He and his sister are a team who publish books with Meg’s company. She feels drawn to him but she is confused about her feelings for him and for Gabe, a man she left in the states. Who will Meg choose? And is Sofia truly a Medici?

This book drew me in from the beginning and I did not want to put it down. The author weaves a story of intrigue and love in the telling of the lives of Meg, Sofia and Nora. You will feel compassion for all three women the more you read. I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. To read the first chapter of the book visit
