Publisher's Summary

A story of love, art, and obsession in Victorian England from debut novelist Lori Baker.

The Glass Ocean is a story of becoming. Flame-haired, six-foot-two in stocking feet, newly orphaned Carlotta Dell'oro recounts the lives of her parents - solitary glassmaker Leopoldo Dell'oro and beautiful, unreachable Clotilde Girard - and discovers in their loves and losses, their omissions and obsessions, the circumstances of her abandonment and the weight of her inheritance. With a master artisan's patience and exquisite craft, debut novelist Lori Baker has created a gemlike Victorian world, a place where mistakes of the past reappear in the future, art can destroy, and family is not to be trusted.

Leopoldo and Clotilde meet in 1841 aboard the Narcissus, on an expedition led by Clotilde's magnanimous, adventuring father. It's Leopoldo's task to document the animals of the high sea, and by his skilled hand the drawings become the only record of these secretive creatures' existence. But what possesses his mind is golden Clotilde, and soon his papers fill with images of her, beginning a devotion that will prove inescapable.
