The Christmas Glass by Marci Alborghetti

The Christmas Glass by Marci Alborghetti

Ratings: (0)|Views: 15 |Likes:
The collection of 12 glass Christmas ornaments Filomena brought with her to America from war-torn Italy represented her family history and legacy, a symbol of the survival of her special and fragile family. So when Filomena began to distribute these ornaments to her children, grandchildren, and other important people in her life, it seemed like she was giving away pieces of herself.

Many years later, when Filomena is nearing the end of her life, she wants to bring her Christmas glass, and her family, back together. But sibling rivalries and the distance of time and space have made Filomena's family as delicate as the glass ornaments. As the owners of each ornament slowly gather, their stories both join and clash with Filomena's hopes and memories. Will this odd and sometimes volatile assortment of individuals find peace and reconciliation over this extraordinary Christmas holiday? The Christmas Glass tells their stories, exploring the bonds and conflicts of one very extended family on one very important Christmas.
