The Lovereading4Kids comment
Two strong minded young people battle against the prejudices of their countries in this gripping adventure set in a strongly realised imaginary world. Rain is the talented daughter of a glass maker. Her father uses her skills to create his famous designs but her work must be kept a secret as girls are of no account in her world. Far, far away lives Peri, a humble falconer right on the lowest rung of a society ruled by inequality. Their paths cross when Peri rescues Rain from bandits as she travels on a mission to his country. How the two of them stand up against the authorities is excitingly told against a vivid and richly described background.
The Glass Swallow by Julia Golding
Rain designs exquisite stained glass for the windows of her city. But the law is clear-it is forbidden for girls to be part of the glassmakers' guild. To keep her secret hidden, she leaves home and travels to the strange new country of Magharna. When Peri witnesses Rain's capture by a gang of bandits, both his fate and his heart become tied to hers. They escape the outlaws, but Peri and his family of falconers are untouchables who are scorned by all, and Rain is not allowed to be part of their lives. Can Rain and Peri's love survive the prejudices against them? And with the country on the brink of disaster will they be able to stop their world from smashing apart?
