Publisher Comments:

"SEVENTH HEAVEN confirms her place as one of the finest writers of her generation."
NEWSWEEK
Nora is ahead of her time. A single mother in 1950s suburbia, she's strong, sexy, passionate, and mysterious. Everyone in town is touched by her, and in the mirror of her magnetism, people see themselves as never before. With Nora's courageous image before them, they begin to ask themselves questions they had never asked--finding answers they had never dared to imagine....
"Brilliant and astonishing...Suffused with magic."
COSMOPOLITAN

This tale of fifties suburbia, with all of its double standards and repressed desires, is absolutely magical.

Alice Hoffman handles her portrayal of a young divorcee trying to fit into a neighborhood that doesn't want "her kind" without making one misstep along the way.

The unfolding of Nora's story is beautifully told, more like poetry than prose. It's long been one of my favorites, for although it deals with a painful subject it does so with shining grace, dignity and hope.
