Synopsis:
In this sequel to the award-winning "Lives Of The Saints", seven-year-old Vittorio arrives in Canada with his newborn half-sister, their mother having died on the ship that brought them from Italy. Under the shadow of that death Vittorio is reunited with his estranged father, and starts a new life.

Review:
After a harrowing voyage from Italy, during which his mother died, seven-year-old Vittorio arrives in Canada with his newborn half-sister, and is reunited with his estranged father, a dark, isolated, and angry figure he hardly knows. The story that follows spans two decades of Vittorio's life within an immigrant Italian farming community in Southwestern Ontario, through his university years, and then into Africa where he goes to teach. At the centre of Vittorio's existence is his strained relationship with his father and with his half-sister, Rita. In a Glass House is a haunting tale about perseverance and longed-for redemption. Ricci juxtaposes the intimate, complex world of family, with "its shadowy intricate web of alliances," against the dislocations of the immigrant experience. The result is a richly textured and memorable novel.
