Comment: PROFESSIONAL SELLER SHIPPING TOP QUALITY BOOKS WITHIN 24 HOURS.100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE Well-loved but cared for, and still very readable. The previous owner has certainly very much enjoyed reading this book more than once, therefore please be aware there will be some creasing on the spine or slight shelf wear. If it's been in their collection for some time, say years old or more, some pages might be discoloured and there may be other minor age blemishes, but that won't affect its readability. Shipped from the heart of the British countryside this book will leave our library within a day or two of your order and be with you shortly thereafter. Aged book. Please note this book is over 20 years old. It will therefore have tanned pages, age spots and plenty of shelf wear. However, for its age it is still very useable, and a great read.

Product description


This is the work of somebody profoundly connected to the countryside. The Mysteries of Glass casts its own spell, which is the essential requirement of a novel (Daily Telegraph)

Gee's gentle and restrained story celebrates the sanctity of the ordinary and the beauty of holiness. In a cynical age, such innocence is startling. (The Independent)

This is the work of somebody profoundly connected to the countryside. The Mysteries of Glass casts its own spell, which is the essential requirement of a novel. (Times Literary Supplement)

Written with the delicate fluency of a storyteller utterly at ease with her craft (Times Literary Supplement)

'Her work is so good it is unforgettable... Gee's books may be unashamedly romantic and sensual, but they are also so sparely written that the economy of her writing is often breathtaking... a beautiful, redemptive book' Jackie McGlone, Glasgow Herald (Jackie McGlone, Glasgow Herald)

This is a novel that takes place on the borders of things - between genre and literary, erotic restraint and progressive desire, between Victorian faith and twenty-first century rationalism (Times Literary Supplement)

What could have been just another historical romance becomes a powerful meditation on faith, love and happiness thanks to the intensity of Gee's faultless prose. (City Life, Manchester)

This exquisitely written novel transports you to the simple beauty, poignancy and hypocrisy of the Victorian era in a way that makes you feel you've been there. I cannot recommend it highly enough (Katie Fforde)

'Profound and lyrical, it's full of light and darkness and the most marvellous description' Shena Mackay (Observer)

Profound and lyrical, it's full of light and darkness and the most marvellous description (Shena Mackay, Observer)
