Fantastic book! I felt I was eavesdropping on very personal interactions but could not stop!

The Story Sisters by Alice Hoffman
The Story Sisters

Ruth Clark, June 8, 2011

Unforgettable relationship between a trio of sisters, so very different, but so fiercely united as young girls that they create their own language. As the girls mature Elv, the eldest who made up their fairy world, spirals out of control, Claire blindly supports her wayward sibling, and Meg attempts to protect Claire from Elv. You will laugh and cry over the life experiences of the sisters and their mother while the writer in all of us sighs in longing that we could write passages as eloquent as those of Alice Hoffman. Hoffman is a master at magical realism.
