At first I thought this was going to be a predictable "man versus nature" diatribe with nature winning, but actually had more complexity to it. An enjoyable read.

It was really scattered and I didn't like the way the author told the story or her style. Pretty much turned me off Alice Hoffman novels.

Bestselling author of Practical Magic (also a movie starring Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman), this is classic Alice Hoffman. A "seductive and mesmerizing story", about love and loss. Great read.

I found this to be a page-turner about a woman who returns to her hometown and encounters the man who she was obsessed with when they were both children.

Hoffman's writing style is engaging and this book was a quick read. I would not classify it as a love story, though, unless it is about lessons behind the main plot, as control and abuse should never be mistaken for love. Probably a mark of good writing, if a difficult situation is capable of affection a raw nerve.

A moving story of family love and the forces that threaten to undermine it.
