    It’s 1893, and at the Chicago World’s Fair, Louis Comfort Tiffany makes his debut with a luminous exhibition of innovative stained-glass windows, which he hopes will honor his family business and earn him a place on the international artistic stage. But behind the scenes in his New York studio is the freethinking Clara Driscoll. Publicly unrecognized by Tiffany, Clara conceives of and designs nearly all of the iconic leaded-glass lamps for which he is long remembered.

    What did you love best about Clara and Mr. Tiffany?

    I really enjoyed the interesting story about the "Tiffany Girls" and their experience working as working women artists in the late 1800's and early 1900's in NYC. I found the author's description of the processes of creating the famous tiffany lamps and windows to be fascinating.


    What other book might you compare Clara and Mr. Tiffany to and why?

    Girl with a Pearl Earring because of it's women's perspective and art creation.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I thought it was really interesting when the women stood up for their right to work and marched in unity down the middle of the road to protest the pressure they were receiving from the men's union.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It wasn't a page turning thriller, but I found myself wanting to read it quickly.

To strengthen his skills, Tom is sent to the far north to train with the demanding Bill Arkwright. Will Tom's new bag of tricks be enough to overcome a critical mistake that leaves him confronting Bloodeye on his own?
