Lost in a strange town, John Moody is an architectural student, serious, reserved, and deliberate. And he has no inkling that the tall, red-haired girl whom he has asked for directions will haunt him for the rest of his life.
John Moody takes Arlyn to live in a house made of glass, the Glass Slipper. Her life there is not the romantic destiny she envisaged. She dreams of escape for herself and her children, Sam and Blanca, but her eventual escape, too, is not the one she dreamed of…

Meredith sets out to try to save this troubled family. But will her devotion be enough to pull them back from the fate they seem… (tovább)

The past was done with. Now she was made out of glass, tranparent and clear. She was an instant in time. One damp evening, two stars in the sky, a line of soot, a chattering gathering of neighbors who barely knew her, in the dining room. She had convinced herself that her futurewould arrive on the street where she'd lived her whole life if only she'd wait long enough. If she trusted in fate.

Part One: Ghost Wife


Blanca had been reading at the table. (…) she already preferred paper over flesh, ink to blood.


Don't let the cat out of the bag. It bites, it scratches, it eats mice whole, tail and ears and all.
