  • Visually stunning, frequently heart-wrenching

    Daily Telegraph
  • Alice Hoffman's novels are a beguiling mix of the ordinary and the extraordinary. Bitter everyday occurrences - broken marriages, disappointed lives - are transformed under her tender gaze into magical, heart-breaking fables... Hoffman acknowledges the weight of this pain in mesmerisingly graceful prose, while the spareness of her style allows for hope's infinite possibilities in even the most daunting of circumstances

    Eithne Farry, Daily Mail
  • A novel that plays with the subconcsious, weaving together magic and myth and a kind of realism. Hoffman is an excellent storyteller with a beguilingly mystical bent

    Time Out
  • A magical, haunting read, full of hidden passions, heartbreak and ghosts

  • The dream-like nature of the narrative is well constructed and oddly plausible
