From the New York Times Bestselling
Author of The Third Angel

Alice Hoffman’s previous novel, The Third Angel, was hailed as "an unforgettable portrait of the depth of true love" (USA Today), "stunning" (Jodi Picoult), and "spellbinding" (Miami Herald). Her new novel, The Story Sisters, charts the lives of three sisters–Elv, Claire, and Meg. Each has a fate she must meet alone: one on a country road, one in the streets of Paris, and one in the corridors of her own imagination. Inhabiting their world are a charismatic man who cannot tell the truth, a neighbor who is not who he appears to be, a clumsy boy in Paris who falls in love and stays there, a detective who finds his heart’s desire, and a demon who will not let go.

What does a mother do when one of her children goes astray? How does she save one daughter without sacrificing the others? How deep can love go, and how far can it take you? These are the questions this luminous novel asks.

At once a coming-of-age tale, a family saga, and a love story of erotic longing, The Story Sisters sifts through the miraculous and the mundane as the girls become women and their choices haunt them, change them and, finally, redeem them. It confirms Alice Hoffman’s reputation as "a writer whose keen ear for the measure struck by the beat of the human heart is unparalleled" (The Chicago Tribune).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Good Love Alice Hoffman!! Her books are oh so different and so good and always with some kind of twist. In this novel there is an interesting play on the 3 sisters last name who create their own private world based in their own language and their own story. It is also about how one tragic event can begin an unravelling and how future events and people can facilitate healing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really loved this! I truly enjoyed this book. It was fun, exciting and got me pretty emotional at times. It was a crazy and adventurous life of three sisters with so many obstacles along the way. If you have a big imagination then this book is for you, as the sisters have a very interesting way of seeing things in life. A great coming-of-age novel.
