Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Turtle Moon transports the reader to Verity, Florida, a place where anything can happen during the month of May, when migrating sea turtles come to town, mistaking the glow of streetlights for the moon. Lucy Rosen, a transplanted New Yorker, is determined to start a new life in Verity, along with her twelve-year-old son, Keith.

But neither Lucy nor Keith could begin to imagine what the town holds in store for them. Everything they've ever hoped for, everything they've feared, begins to happen. When Julian Cash, Verity-born and fierce enough to paralyze bees with fright, enters their lives, nothing will be the same — for Lucy and her son, or for Julian.

Review:

"...[S]he knows how to manipulate suspense and tug the heartstrings; with its cinematic flow and larger-than-life characters, her novel will make a wonderful movie." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Hoffman's strength is that she deals in dreams....[H]er take on the tropics is haunting, hypnotic, and hot as a fever dream." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

This is Alice Hoffman's "captivating...truly original novel" (Cosmopolitan), the story of a divorced woman, her teenage son, and the events that change their lives.

About the Author

Alice Hoffman, an American novelist and screenwriter, was born in New York City in 1952. She earned a B.A. from Adelphi University in 1973 and an M.A. from Stanford in 1975 before publishing her first novel, Property Of, in 1977.

Known for blending realism and fantasy in her fiction, Hoffman often creates richly detailed characters who live on society's margins and places them in extraordinary situations as she did with At Risk, her 1988 novel about the AIDS crisis. Other novels include The Drowning Season (named a "notable book of 1979" by Library Journal) and Seventh Heaven, which first gained Hoffman a broad national audience. She has also written many screenplays, including adaptations of her own novels.

A devorced woman takes her 12 year old son to start a new life, but it turned out to be so much more than they bargained for. This book keeps you on edge and looking over your shoulder.
