The Story Sisters by Alice Hoffman
The Story Sisters

lilsnobelle, September 1, 2011

Having read other books by this author, I was already expecting a pretty good read. This was darker, but much more of a good read than anything I've read by Alice Hoffman. This would make an excellent movie. Her writing style is almost poetic, so much so that I found myself rereading just to recapture the beautiful descriptions. The characters are very strong, and you feel like you know these people. I don't want to give away the story, but the self destructive Elv is the most fascinating sister of the three. I absolutely love the ending. Don't let this book pass you by! I devoured it.

I've read a good bit of historical fiction, and this is by far the best. I loved this book. I recommend it to everyone. It has beautiful prose, a lovely way of showing how Muslim, Jewish, and Christian religions all have to work together to preserve religion. I loved it. I will read it again. Now as I am reading I can 't get into books as they do not match up.
