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!

Love Alice Hoffman. However, this was not my favorite Alice Hoffman book. It started out great. I enjoyed how each chapter was like its own story, yet still connected through generations of people. As the book continued, the chapters got more and more strange and less enjoyable.
