Having been introduced to the Glassick family and the symbolism of the goldfinch bottle, I felt right at home reading about Daire Glassick and his adventures with this special perfume bottle. The little mystery and spiritual journey that the characters take within this small novella was very compelling. As always, Laurie has written another wonderful, unique story that will capture the reader’s attention from the very beginning.

The book starts fast. The first scene Daire is trying to sell the sp

Another of the books I bought from Koorong last year. I enjoyed this story. I felt for Susan who has 3 older sisters and 3 younger brothers. She is left to maintain the house because the older sisters and her mother think she is unable to help sew for missions or do other work to help. Susan feels she has no skills which isn't helped by her family who tend to put her down and expect her to stay at home. Daire has is own issues due to not knowing what he wants in life and having wasted his money ...more

This was a pretty good read about a girl who was given an inheritance by her aunt. She could have the money only when she wed. She gets involved in finding a lost blown glass piece and discovers that she is loved, by God as well as her family. In the process she discovers her life's calling. I give it 3.5 stars.

I loved this book! Susan is loved by her family but at the same time she isn't appreciated by them. She is the glue that holds her family together and seems unimportant. She feels neglected until she stumbles upon an interesting man with a beautiful glass perfume bottle. No one realizes the value of the bottle or the man at first, but when they do, they find both to be quite important.

Finding Purpose ..Clean Romantic Story

After selling a glass goldfinch bottle, Daire discovers what was hidden inside will cost his family dearly and sets out to buy it back. The goldfinch bottle goes missing and it becomes complicated to locate it. The romance builds slowly and is lovely. A very good read.

Another volume

I have truly enjoyed each story. Usually space reading sequels as they often get boring. If read too close to get her. With these books I am reading one after the other and enjoying

Well-written, engaging

I related a great deal to the curious makeup of Meg's upbringing having been raised within a large, busy Christian family. The author painted an authentic picture of characters searching for meaningful purpose in life.

Back home again.

As I am from the state where the story takes place I find the story line well written. Holds your attention thru it all and the author is blessed to bring you home again to God.

Disappointing Read

I disliked this book because left k' room for intrigue. The characters are not nearly as interesting as those in book 1. Too repetitious.
