This has to be one of the most beautifully written books I’ve read so far this year The prose’s lushness left me stunned many times and the story itself is delicately written I loved the way the story was told with the narrator weaving the plot along almost making it happen as she imagines it There were so many fabulous details of the Victorian period including details to do with ships and seafaring that the reader really felt immersed in the age The story is like an old kind of worn piece of lace that is lightly yellowing intricate and pungent The characters especially Clotilde are fascinating The author manages to bring them to life in such a way that they are never overwhelmed by the atmosphere or the details This is not easy to achieve in such an elaborate novel as this one is Characters usually fall by the wayside when details are so strong and the Gothic atmosphere is so rich so I was so glad to find that it was not the case in this one If you love literary fiction historical fiction or both and enjoy gorgeous writing then I highly recommend this one

Self in the employ of a local glassblower There he begins to conceive his newest project transforming his sketches into glass blowing life and light into the darkest creatures But in finding his art he surrenders Clotilde and the distance between the two is only confirmed by the birth of baby Carlotta Years have passed and Carlotta is now grown A friend from the past comes to Whitby and with his arrival sets in motion the Dell’oros’ inevitable disintegration Soon Carlotta is left alone to determine the course of her future though perhaps it is written already In hypnotic inimitable prose Lori Baker’s The Glass Ocean transforms a story of family into something as otherworldly and mesmerizing as life beneath the sea itself. This book employs lush poetic language I would go so far as to say that the rhythms of language are central to the characterizations and setting of the book The author's work with phrasing with the momentum of clauses within a sentence and how they conjure an atmosphere era and person was a great pleasure for me though I would acknowledge that for those readers who want a plot driven novel this style might be discomfiting It's clear that an enormous amount of research went into the writing Victorian science and craftwork travel narratives and details of attire and furnishing all seem precisely depicted but Baker manages this without creating a phony or strained diction and I say this as an avid reader of Victorian novels She has the ability to see and hear a distant world despite its hardships as beautiful spooky and funny as sticky door is disinclinedThe Glass Ocean is a novel that is best read slowly One should savor the texture of the novel's language as intrinsic to its meaning its tonal shifts and through that means the very human characters make their way into the reader's sensibility and linger in mind

The Glass OceanRd the Narcissus on an expedition led by Clotilde’s magnanimous adventuring father It’s Leopoldo’s task to document the animals of the high sea and by his skilled hand the drawings become the only record of these secretive creatures’ existence But what possesses his mind is golden Clotilde and soon his papers fill with images of her beginning a devotion that will prove inescapable Clotilde meanwhile sees only her dear papa but when he goes missing she is pushed to Leopoldo returning with him to the craggy English shores of Whitby the place to which Leopoldo vowed he would never return There they form an uneasy coexistence lost  to each other Clotilde asks only for her papa and Leopoldo turns to town where he finds him. This is an exuisite and harrowing work of literary fiction So many images and passages will stay with me I grew to care deeply for each of the three main characters – the heartbreaking narrator and her two exceptional parents – even when I did not always like what they did I found myself marveling at the beautiful uality and control of language – on par with the best lyrical fiction — and the remarkably rich sensory world I have to say that Lori Baker's ability to bring art and science to life made this book a particular favorite This is one of those rare books where I was emotionally spent when I finished – it was a truly beautiful and cathartic experience
