Publisher's Description

Renaissance is a word with hope infused in every letter.
 
Since she was a child, Meg has dreamed of taking a promised trip to Florence, Italy, and being able to finally step into the place captured in a picture at her grandmother’s house. But after her grandmother passes away and it falls to her less-than-reliable father to take her instead, Meg’s long-anticipated travel plans seem permanently on hold.
 
When her dad finally tells Meg to book the trip, she prays that the experience will heal the fissures left on her life by her parents’ divorce. But when Meg arrives in Florence, her father is nowhere to be found, leaving aspiring memoir-writer Sophia Borelli to introduce Meg to the rich beauty of the ancient city. Sofia claims to be one of the last surviving members of the Medici family and that a long-ago Medici princess, Nora Orsini, communicates with her from within the great masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance.
 
When Sophia, Meg, and Nora’s stories intersect, their lives will be indelibly changed as they each answer the question: What if renaissance isn’t just a word? What if that’s what happens when you dare to believe that what is isn’t what has to be?

Editorial Reviews

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. Susan Meissner is a master storyteller who weaves times and characters together with writing that paints perfect images. This time she gifts us with a trip to Florence, home of art and story."
—Cara C. Putman, award-winning author of A Wedding Transpires on Mackinac Island and Stars in the Night

"Susan Meissner has done it again with this sweeping tale that will have you turning the pages late into the night. Get caught up in the journey of Meg as she finds her life and direction in the beauty and mystery of Italy. You will be cheering magnifico!"
—Jenny B. Jones, award-winning author of Save the Date and A Charmed Life series

Praise for Susan Meissner

"Meissner delivers a delightful page-turner that will surely enthrall readers from beginning to end. The antebellum details, lively characters, and overlapping dramas particularly will excite history buffs and romance fans."
—Publisher’s Weekly starred review

"Meissner transports readers to another time and place to weave her lyrical tale of love, loss, forgiveness, and letting go."
—Karen White, New York Times best-selling author of The Beach Trees

"My eyes welled up more than once! A beautiful story of love, loss, and sacrifice, and of the bonds that connect us through time."
—Susanna Kearsley, New York Times best-selling author of The Winter Sea

"How does Susan create characters that stay with me long after I close the book? How does she address the emotions and memories that hold us hostage with such grace? I keep reading, knowing I’ll discover a fascinating story and hoping I’ll infuse some of the skill and craft that Susan weaves to make it."
—Jane Kirkpatrick , award-winning author of The Daughter’s Walk
