From Library Journal:

Sparling plays out events in The Glass Mountain as a musician might entertain an audience with a familiar song. Pianist Chloe Delaney's stay in a psychiatric hospital is a constant refrain, about which most of her memories of family and loves float like mournful melodies. Chloe's early happiness comes from visits to a grandmother and cousin Cosimo whom her adoptive and aloof parents try to keep from her. A marriage to a man as rigid as her father ends in divorce. Only her friendship with Cosimo, ``the touchstone of her existence,'' gives her the connectedness and continuity she desires. His death and the revelation that he is actually her brother trigger her breakdown. A first novel with good characterization, but a weak ending. Lucinda Ann Peck, Columbus, Ohio
