Interview with the heroine in The Glassblower by Laurie Alice Eakes:

Meg Jordan, tell me the most interesting thing about you.
I am surrounded by beautiful glass, as my father owns a glassworks, and the man I love is a glassblower.

What do you do for fun?
I go for long walks in the country, fishing, playing with kittens. We always have kittens on the farm.

What do you put off doing because you dread it?
Marrying. Not marriage itself, but marrying the man my father wants me to marry.

What are you afraid of most in life?
Being separated from those I love—my father, my best friend Sarah, Colin.

What do you want out of life?
To do something important. I really want to start a school so other children can be educated and live at home instead of going away like I had to.

What is the most important thing to you?

Do you read? If so, what is your favorite type of book to read?
Romantic novels.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I want to be more obedient to God, do what He wants me to do instead of what I want.

Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?
I have several kittens. Why? Because they literally came across my path and demanded that I rescue them.

If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?
Well, I live back in time, so I’m not sure how much further back I’d want to go. Maybe just to when my mother was alive, so I could persuade her and Father not to send me away. I don’t like leaving home.
