Summary:
Johanna, the oldest of the three Steinmann sisters, has successfully managed the family glassblowing business since her father s death, and her sister Marie s artistic gifts have made their wares unexpectedly famous. But now the livelihood of the town of Lauscha, Germany known around the world as the paradise of glass is in danger. The local glassworks is about to be sold, and rumor has it the buyer wants to make changes that will challenge glassblowing tradition. Wanda, the daughter of the middle Steinmann sister, is freshly arrived from America and engaged to an ambitious local glassblower. Yet as soon as the bold young woman learns of the impending sale, she decides to do as her mother and aunts did cast aside her expected role in order to save the day. With the help of a handsome bank clerk, she will take a daring risk with the villagers hard-earned money. Just like glass, though, love and commerce are fragile, and what begins as their last hope may just end in shattered dreams.
