The main caracter of this novel, Clara Driscoll, was a real person and an artist who made Tiffany Lamps at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. This book is a period piece that looks at the life of Mrs. Driscoll, her work, and turn of the century New York City life in equal measure. It is an enjoyable enough read if one is interested in any of those topics, but I don't think it would be a compelling enough read to create interest in the topics. There is no high drama, just a life well lived.

Nonetheless, I will probably feel compelled to get a copy of it for my family member who shares this lady's name.
