While Alice Hoffman has been one of my favorite authors for some time now, this book was slightly disappointing.

First off let me state that the scenery in this book is phenomenal. Leave it to Hoffman to paint a picture for us so vivid, that we feel like we are indeed there with the characters.

Character development is also well done, another one of Hoffman's positive attributes. However, the stories in this novel fall completely flat around such stand alone characters. Stories were never really developed and the endings of each made you feelings a little disheartened, hoping for something more.

Hoffman has always been good at telling many different stories and wrapping them all together with elegant connections, however these characters stories weren't as interesting as I had hoped they would be.

What I will give this book is that it was a nice read for something like the beach, or when you're waiting for a train. However it became one of those books I was hoping to finish as quick as possible so I could move on to another, more interesting one.
