The Girl in the Glass (2012)
language
English
3.88 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I think Meissner puts a lot of wisdom into the thoughts of her characters that may get lost with the straight-forward movement of the story and every-day interaction among the people. In fact, I think I may have liked a little more depth to make me savor these points more. Meg en...

review 1: Two women, one century apart, two NYC tragedies, one scarf that very loosely ties them together, this book was hard to put down. While Clara's time as a nurse on Ellis Island was interesting, her story of loss wasn't quite as compelling as Taryn's. Maybe because I remember how ...
The Shape of Mercy (2008)
language
English
3.96 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: This is what historical fiction should be like!! I used to hate history in school because it was dry and simply facts and dates. This gives factual accounts of people involved in the Salem witch trials (mixed with fiction) surrounding a compelling story, making it amazingly fasc...
A Sound Among the Trees (2011)
language
English

review 1: This is not the kind of book I would normally read. That is to say, it's the kind of book I would view as having the possibility of being interesting, but would also fear I'd be bored and probably not pick it up. I read a lot of science fiction, a lot of fantasy, a lot of romance...
Lady in Waiting (2010)
language
English

review 1: One book, two stories, interwoven across five centuries. Susan Meissner expertly weaves the stories of two Janes in her novel, lady In Waiting. Focusing on the theme of choice, Mrs. Meissner tells the story of modern day Jane Lindsay, who has always been happy to allow others to ...

review 1: Favorite quotes: On teaching a child to read - and I've witnessed this!!"Every day she saw miracles. An unmistakable veil lifted when a kid finally grasped the concept of words on paper and at last the world of books lay before him like the threshold to the universe. Everything a...

review 1: I have enjoyed many of Susan Meissners books, as they are generally full of beautiful writing and simple truths. This book was written well and true to form had many "quoteable" passages, but I just couldn't find a connection with the main character, Clara. I found her to be frus...
Secrets of a Charmed Life (2000)
language
English
4.6 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Susan Meissner has a wonderful talent of creating a story that spans different eras. In Secrets of a Charmed Life she weaves present day together with WWII London during the Blitz. She held me captive from the the beginning to the very last page. But then every book I have read b...
