In Minnesota, Jen Glass believed she was Cinderella when she married Ted; as she escaped poverty and her recently deceased abusive father. However, her idyllic life proves far from perfect especially since Ted lost his good-paying finance position but continues his affair; while their teenage daughter Livvy treats her with scorn and their four year old son Teddy for the most part never speaks.

Two armed men (Dan and Ryan) invade the Glass suburban home. They lock the family of four in the basement. Jen prays they just rob and leave them unharmed, but also she wonders how these thugs know so much about her and her family, and why they assaulted her perfect home. However her prayers are unanswered when the Glass quartet become hostages so like any mama protecting her cubs, Jen vows to keep her kids safe.

House of Glass is a thrilling suspenseful family drama with a solid character core engaging the audience even as we know what is coming next. Fast-paced from the moment the house invasion begins, readers will believe they are locked in the basement with the frightened Glass family.
