This is an excellent book about relationships of all sorts. It explores characters' actions and reactions. It can be difficult at times, but is well worth reading.

strange.....but still entertaining

One the things I love about Alice Hoffman's books is her ability to take such unrelated characters and weave them into a completely logical, believable story. The other is her ability to tell such a GOOD story - it's all about the language. This book satisfies me on those two levels, but I didn't like the ending. It left me wanting more, and not in a great way. But it has left me haunted by the characters and location. Overall I liked the book, but was disappointed by the ending.

Another great Hoffman book. I don't think she is capable of writing a bad line.

I thought Alice Hoffman tried to invest in too many characters for such a short novel. I felt as if I was acquainted with them but did not have a chance to really know any of them. I was disapointed in this book.
