The Color of Ice


Set in Iceland—with its volcanoes, glaciers, and thermal pools—and framed by the magical art of glassblowing, The Color of Ice is the breath-taking, unforgettable story of a woman's awakening to passion, beauty, and unconditional love.

Cathryn McAllister's carefully-ordered life is upended when she travels to Iceland to interview a charismatic but reclusive glass artist who wants to capture the country's iconic blue icebergs in blown glass. Little by little, she abandons her itinerary to spend time with him, and finds herself torn between the life—and self—she knows and a new world of risk, revelation, and passion.

Just when she thinks her path is clear, Cathryn is tested in a way she never could have imagined—and brought to a stunning act of love that she never thought she was capable of.
