Clara and Mr. Tiffany
Clara and Mr. Tiffany: A Novel | Susan Vreeland
8 posts | 10 read | 17 to read
NATIONAL BESTSELLER Its 1893, and at the Chicago Worlds Fair, Louis Comfort Tiffany makes his debut with a luminous exhibition of innovative stained-glass windows that he hopes will earn him a place on the international artistic stage. But behind the scenes in his New York studio is the freethinking Clara Driscoll, head of his womens division, who conceives of and designs nearly all of the iconic leaded-glass lamps for which Tiffany will long be remembered. Never publicly acknowledged, Clara struggles with her desire for artistic recognition and the seemingly insurmountable challenges that she faces as a professional woman. She also yearns for love and companionship, and is devoted in different ways to five men, including Tiffany, who enforces a strict policy: He does not employ married women. Ultimately, Clara must decide what makes her happiestthe professional world of her hands or the personal world of her heart. Look for special features inside.

Opened my package today and was blown away by the number of books! And I haven't read any of them yet so I will be entertained all summer long! Thanks to @bookandcat for the great box of goodies! ❤️❤️😀📚Great way to start the day and summer! And thanks to @BookishMarginalia for organizing this great thing! ❤️😀 #summersantagoespostal

bookandcat Yay I hope you enjoy! (Also there is a bookmark that is probably now hidden in one of the books, I slipped it inside for safe keeping but it may have slipped down in transit!) 2y
LauraBrook All of those books look good - I've only read the Girl Waits book and it was excellent! Enjoy your summer and your Santa haul! 💖 2y
Jerdencon @bookandcat I found the bookmark! Thanks... think that may be the first book I read! 2y
bookandcat @Jerdencon oh good it made it safely! I've read all of these books (well, haven't quite finished Cleopatra yet) and highly recommend them all. Your Goodreads to read list had lots of great books on it! 2y
bookandcat I'm super tempted to pick up copies of Girl in Translation and Clara and Mr Tiffany for myself actually. Read them from the library years ago and they have stuck with me :-) 2y

I LOVED this book. A fictionalization about the working years of the manager of the women's dept at the Tiffany glass studio in the late 1800's. Descriptions were spot on and not boring. A great story about loyalty to friends and employer, also Victorian living in NYC. So fun to google the art!

ChristieStratos I was wondering if this was worth a read. I'll give it a shot too! Sounds so interesting. 3y
Reviewsbylola This book fell off my radar. Thanks for reminding me about it. 3y
