really liked it
Read from March 10 to 11, 2012

I went into this book with an open mind - I hadn't seen any reviews, I hadn't had any recommendations from anyone, and in fact I had stumbled up on the book purely by chance.
What a gem it turned out to be!

(view spoiler)

This sense of familiarity really drew me in, I love books where you can spot the association's when you look for them, but aren't too obvious that the storyline becomes crass.

This was my first Alice Hoffman book and also a new genre exploration into magical realism - it got the double thumbs up from me.
