Storm Glass free pdf With stunning virtuosity, the stories in Jane Urquhart s dazzling first book of fiction unearth universal truths as they reach across countries and eras. A woman runs away to a cottage in the English moors to escape a love affair- shards of glass reconcile a middle-aged wife to her husband s estrangement- a grandmother makes a startling confession from her youth- a young woman discovers herself through the life of an Italian saint- and, in a spellbinding story of artistic jealousy, we enter the mind of poet Robert Browning at the end of his life. In these beautifully crafted stories, ordinary objects brim with meaning and memories radiate with significance as Jane Urquhart illuminates the things that lie just beneath the surface of our lives."
