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.
A good story, with some odd twists
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.
I love the magic of Hoffman's writing and this one is populated with magic and quirky characters.
Very unique style--a bittersweet read.
Another great Hoffman book. I don't think she is capable of writing a bad line.
Add this to your Alice Hoffman collection . . .just a great read!
Full of remarkable characters in a beautiful seeting (Martha's Vineyard)vinateg Hoffman - full of magic, mystery and longing. A quick read you won't want to put down.
A great read, I love the way Alice Hoffman writes!
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.
