Caroline Hewitt's rich timbre and empathetic tone lend themselves perfectly to this illuminating historical novel about three independent young women who work at the Tiffany Glass Company in 1899. Hewitt brings out the personalities of the main characters, who find commonality in their shared passion for creativity and independence. Hewitt gives a touch of desperation and a spot-on French accent to Emilie, who has absconded from Paris to New York for a chance at honest employment. Grace, who is moonlighting as an anonymous political cartoonist, is characterized by headstrong resoluteness. And manager Clara is portrayed with quiet pragmatism. Hewitt balances the women's wistful dreaminess with their practicality as they navigate the social expectations of the era while passionately creating Tiffany's iconic stained-glass windows.
