From the New York Times best-selling author
of The Dovekeepers, Alice
Hoffman is at her haunting, thought-provoking best
with these interconnected stories about a Long Island family, the
Samuelsons, and the lessons in survival and transformation that
life brings to every family...
"Pulls the reader in effortlessly...Hoffman has the power to
make you really laugh and really cry." --USA
"Moving and deadpan funny...Epiphanies about passion, pain, and
resiliency induce smiles and shivers in equal measure."
