Carlotta, the hero of debut novelist Lori Baker’s The Glass Ocean (The Penguin Press), was born to love-lorn seafarers whose story she learns slowly and achingly. As facts surface, the past haunts Carlotta, and with the dream-like atmosphere of the novel, the reader is haunted, too. But the setting and the rich characterization of Carlotta’s artist father and beautiful mother propelled me through the pages; Baker has a gift for narrating in detail, and the intensity of the love story kept me sucked in. 

On the heels of The Glass Ocean's release, Lori Baker answers a few questions for Bustle about her interest in glass art, history, and love stories.
