Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
November 2014
15 hours 19 minutes
In the village of Lauscha in Germany, things have been done the same way for centuries. The men blow the glass, and the women decorate and pack it. But when Joost Steinmann passes away unexpectedly one September night, his three daughters must learn to fend for themselves. While feisty Johanna takes a practical approach to looking for work, Ruth follows her heart, aiming to catch the eye of a handsome young villager. But it is dreamy, quiet Marie who has always been the most captivated by the magic—and sparkling possibilities—of the craft of glassblowing. As the spirited sisters work together to forge a brighter future for themselves on their own terms, they learn not only how to thrive in a man’s world, but how to remain true to themselves—and their hearts—in the process.

The story is good but the narrator leaves much to be desired as she sounds like a teenager Southern Californian, therefore disengaging the audience from the characters. A more authentic narrator would enhance the audio experience and present the story more suitably.
