Praise for The Girl in the Glass
"The Girl in the Glass is possibly the most beautiful book I've ever read. Susan Meissner lifted her book to the level of poetry at the same time she drew me in so deeply to the story that I was lost in the world she created. The story comes in three threads that twist together into a stunning, compelling, enchanting whole. I absolutely loved it."
-Mary Connealy, author of The Kincaid Brides series
"The Girl in the Glass is a compelling story that left me begging the world to stop long enough to savor its pages.

-Cara C. Putman, award-winning author of A Wedding Transpires on Mackinac Island and Stars in the Night
