This is a great book that is 100% the Alice Hoffman I love. 200 years of family stories and lessons learned in one small northern town. Hoffman can take the simplest of things and make them mysterious. If you love Hoffman as I do, you will love this book. One thing that I didn't like was that The Truth About My Mother was a recycled story from another one of her books (Blackbird House?). It's a great story, but I didn't like hearing it again with another family. This book is almost a book of short stories, but few can weave together to make one story as AH does. Great book!

Excellent collection of stories. Each stands alone as a wonderful short story, yet they all take place in the same small town just in different times in history. This makes for one big ongoing collection of stories from the beginning of the towns inception to modern day. Each character is interestingly related in some way to some former character in the previous stories. Very detailed and emotional and intriquing settings and situations. I loved it - one of Alice Hoffmans best!
