LoveReading View on The Girl in the Green Glass Mirror

The sensual story of a modern-day passion sparked by the mutual love of the Victorian faerie artist Richard Dudd

The Girl in the Green Glass Mirror Synopsis

When art dealer Catherine Sergeant meets John Brigham, her view of the world has been shattered. Left by her husband Robert without explanation, she expects little from life.


Apparently reclusive, John lives alone in a beautiful Arts and Crafts house on the edge of Dorset woodland, and has contacted Catherine's firm so that he may sell unwanted items. But when the two discover a mutual love of the haunting Victorian faerie artist Richard Dadd, their friendship rapidly deepens. As Catherine and John begin an affair that is to change their lives, John reveals an astonishing secret that links him to Dadd.


Deeply sensual, The Girl in the Green Glass Mirror is a journey not only through love and obsession, but also through the world of Richard Dadd, whose tortured life was more extraordinary than any fairy tale.
