I was so sad for Wanda when things kept falling through for her again and again throughout book 2 and 3...she wanted so desperately to find her true calling....and boy how she did in the 3rd book. Organizing the glass blowers to stand up,for themselves, organizing their funds and giving them the strength and encouragement....and to fall flat,......again! But I am a suckered for a happy ending....I really enjoyed this trilogy, and have already recommend it to several people!!

updated and profitable again,She meets a young man in Germany she wants to marry [afte r dropping a self=involved glassblower!
I think there were only 2 instances of sexual content in the 3 books of this trilogy and they were explicit. But if it bothers anyone, they can just fast forward past them.
The violence was very minimal and not anything I had any trouble with.. this is a great trilogy and I highly recommend them. I don't recommend the audio version because of the narrator unless you don't mind that sort of thing.
This 3rd book was good...until the end. I think the detail was very long, explaining the circumstances, setting the scene. Then it just ended so quickly. It was almost like the writer got tired and just wanted to be done. I was disappointed.
The story moved along at a very nice pace. It was interesting and well worth the read.
I loved all three books. I recommend reading them in order, however I am not sure its required as each book builds on its own, and yet pull upon the previous books as well. Adult readers would enjoy these. I give them 5 out if 5 stars
