Publishers Description "Filled with warmth and tender insights," Heart of Glass" follows the unforgettable Fairwyn March from young adulthood through midlife during the final decades of the nineteenth century.

Determined to be everything her husband wants, she gives up the core of herself. Then one day, she discovers a secret that shatters her world. Sending herself into self-imposed exile, Fairwyn allows her family to believe her dead. Her journey takes her across the continent-and into the landscape of her heart.

A wonderful journey of the heart Aug 2, 2002
Diane Noble has a wonderful voice in this tale of Fairwyn March, a young woman who leaves her mountain home and marries a college professor. She soon discovers that Zebulon Deforest does not love her and her life spirals out of control.
I have enjoyed all of Diane Noble's books and this one is no different. Told in first person, Heart of Glass captures the soul of this troubled girl. I ached with her when she first learned of Zebulon's betrayal. I grieved as she realized that the man she loved couldn't be hers. If you're looking for an enjoyable read, this one's a good bet.

A Romantic Times Top Pick 4 1/2 STARS.... Diane Noble beautifully portrays life in the Smokey Mountains in Heart of Glass. Fairwyn March is a mountain girl with a voice as pure as crystal. She love her Poppy and her home, but an outsider's visit stirs in her a yearning to know more about the world. When Zebulon Deforest offers her the chance of a lifetime, she take it even though her Poppy is dead-set against it. Being away from the mountain isn't quite what she dreamed of and eventually it seems her Poppy was right. With so much loss and heartache, will she ever find God's peace and forgiveness? THIS ONE SHOULD TOP YOUR READING LIST!
