"Renaissance "is a word with hope infused in every letter.
Since she was a child, Meg has dreamed of taking a promised trip to Florence, Italy, and being able to finally step into the place captured in a picture at her grandmother's house. But after her grandmother passes away and it falls to her less-than-reliable father to take her instead, Meg's long-anticipated travel plans seem permanently on hold.
When her dad finally tells Meg to book the trip, she prays that the experience will heal the fissures left on her life by her parents' divorce. But when Meg arrives in Florence, her father is nowhere to be found, leaving aspiring memoir-writer Sophia Borelli to introduce Meg to the rich beauty of the ancient city. Sofia claims to be one of the last surviving members of the Medici family and that a long-ago Medici princess, Nora Orsini, communicates with her from within the great masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance.
When Sophia, Meg, and Nora's stories intersect, their lives will be indelibly changed as they each answer the question: What if "renaissance "isn't just a word? What if that's what happens when you dare to believe that what "is "isn't "what has to be"?

It's the first time I was given a chance to choose among an array of books to review. I usually read books that I really thought of reading.. Something I'm going to like, something that won't keep me awake at night (I have a dislike for horror). I want to make sure that my time won't be wasted when I read it. But then, the first time I saw "The Girl in the Glass" amongst the ebooks I was qualified to read, my heart told me to just click the button and read it. One-third for the chance to create a review, two-thirds because I was curious on the story. Here's a taste of my appetizer for the story: Meg Pomeroy is fed up after a broken engagement, the disappearance of her irresponsible father and the loss of a promised heirloom. When her missing father sends her a ticket to Florence, Italy, Meg assumes he will meet her there. Instead, she meets Sofia, a memoir-writer who claims she's the last Medici and that the masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance speak to her. As Meg tours Florence, her perspectives on what is real-and what she wants to be real-are challenged. excerpt from Edelweiss This book moved me in different ways and made me re-evaluate certain parts of my life. 1. Family. The story, especially the lives of the women in it, made me realize how lucky I am to have a complete and happy family of my own. It's not a normal situation these days. It's something I should hold close to my heart and always be thankful everyday. The book told me that when people around you love you and care for you, you will always be safe. They will not always do the black-and-white "right" thing, but they will protect you in the ways they know best. 2. Love, looking for it and knowing who "the one" is. Love is always a funny thing in books. Many stories show love as something simple and uncomplicated. After a real love story of your own, you'd think, "Yeah it was real simple all along." But while you're still in the situation of starting to feel in love, the simplicity is hard to pinpoint. The emotions make everything seem a lot more tangled than it really is. That part which other books seem to miss, The Girl in the Glass got head on. It showed the stormy thoughts and decision making of a woman. Which is more reality than anything else. Very refreshing. 3. Travel. Or more specifically, Florence. One of the most important things I am working to right now is saving up some money so I can start travelling. I want to travel to France and other European countries. I expect it to be real expensive but I know I can bring my family there someday. The description of Florence in the book was so detailed that I felt like I was there. It is a beautiful place, like a dream place to live. 4. Book publishing. My new life short-term goal is to be a contributor to wonderful sites where I can share what I know and help other people as well. The book gave me an overview on how being a book editor is. I've always wondered what they do for the authors and the books they published. 5. History. Knowing about the values of history makes me swoon every time I encounter a book that offers a bit of background of the past. It's a nice feeling to know that even if the story is fictional, the author is creative and resourceful enough to match a historical fact to it. It's really enjoyable and adds a bit more depth in the plot. 6. Trust and reality. The line with the greatest impact for me is *I'm paraphrasing here* that we create a reality as to what was suggested to us by the person we trust. When we love someone, we immediately trust them. We depend on them to catch us, that they will be the ones we can depend on when we feel weak or exhausted. Whatever they say, true or not, proven or not, it will become real to us. I am in love with this book. I finished this within a week. For those who prefer fictional books with a bit of historical twist, this is the book for you. It's light to read and easy to absorb. It will leave you thinking.
