While I did learn a bit about Tiffany Studios and Clara Driscoll, this book was far too much like an overwrought and overwritten soap opera for my taste. Clara Driscoll's life, story, and accomplishments could have been much more interesting in a different author's hands, but this Clara weeps, wails, and waits - for acceptance and recognition from Louis Comfort Tiffany, and for love (from LCT?) but doesn't seem to know what to do when she receives what she has been seeking. All in all, this Clara is not a very likable character and I think the real Clara Driscoll probably deserves better.

Karen I think many of us women wish she became an activist for women's rights in the workplace after her experience. I can understand that she loved her work enough to continue with low pay and no recognition, but why not put her efforts towards women's rights after she quit? Guess she was just quite human - happy to have human love in her life and step back from stress.
