Synopses & Reviews
"Subtle touches...make this intelligent novel shine. Ms. Hoffman knows how to tell a story."
THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
Set on Martha's Vineyard, here is a stunning novel that brings that beautiful island to vivid life--a novel that weaves together the lives of a little boy, an elderly woman, a blond giant, a young couple, and a teenaged girl...lives of intense erotic longing, of quiet understanding, of willful determination. It is a novel of magic and mystery, and a literary event that confirms Alice Hoffman as one of our finest and most compelling writers.
