Overview

IN THE SUMMER OF 1888, Clara Wolcott, a daring young artist from Ohio, walked into Louis Tiffany's Manhattan office to interview for a job as a designer. For the next 21 years, her pivotal role in his multi-million dollar empire remained one of Tiffany's most closely guarded secrets—a secret that when revealed 118 years later sent the international art world into a tailspin.
Torn between his obsession with Clara and his lust for success, Tiffany resorts to desperate measures to keep her creative genius under his command. Clara cleverly navigates both her turbulent love-hate relationship with Tiffany and the rigid rules of Victorian and Edwardian societies, in order to embrace all the adventure and romance turn-of-the-century New York City has to offer.
Basing her story on a recently discovered cache of letters written between 1888 and 1944, New York Times bestselling author Echo Heron artfully blends fact with fiction to draw the reader into the remarkable life of one of America's most prolific and extraoridnary women artists: Clara Wolcott Driscoll, the hidden genius behind the iconic Tiffany lamps.

This fictionalized biography of Clara Wolcott Driscoll is much better than Clara and Mr. Tiffany by Susan Vreeland. Both Clara and Louis Comfort Tiffany are much more fully realized characters in Heron's work. Echo Heron uses letters, as Clara did, to tell the story of her very interesting life. She also uses diary entries by L.C. Tiffany to let the reader know him more intimately. There are fewer details about the making of the "Tiffany" shades which Clara created in Heron's book. Clara's artistry was the primary focus of the Vreeland book.

Just finished the best historical novel I have read in a long time by New York Times best seller, Echo Heron. It's about the life of Clara Wolcott Driscoll, the genius behind Tiffany Art designs and who thanks to Louis Comfort Tiffany, never got the recognition she so richly deserved. If you like historical novels especially about intrepid women in a time where they had little voice in politics or life, this is a must read. You'll fall in love with Clara and cheer her on as she faces life head on.
