The Oracle Glass

Author: Judith Merkle Riley
Reviewer's Age: Grade 10

This story chronicles the escape of a young, independent, brilliant, and tragically crippled French girl in the period of the "Sun King," Louis XIV of France, from the confines of her intriguing family. She rises in a society of mystery and the occult, to be valued and admired. A severe addiction challenges her in many adventures yet she overcomes this to triumph in love and success. This is a great story, full of many twists and surprises, well-written and thoroughly plotted.
