Angel Landingby Alice Hoffman
The bestselling author of Practical Magic offers "an affecting love story, laced with humor" (Booklist) that tells the tale of a man and a woman, an activist and a therapist, so consumed with helping others that they are in danger of failing in their duty to themselves. Natalie, a therapist, is in love with Carter -- but he is deeply dedicated to his environmental work, and the fate of their relationship takes a backseat to the fate of the planet. Then a new client walks into Natalie's office. He is an intriguing man, with an incredible tale to tell -- and under his influence, she faces questions about the direction of her own passion, the true meaning of commitment...and the possibility of finding the love she seeks --right in her own backyard.

Alice Hoffman is amazing, Her characters capture your heart and the beautiful imagery she creates with words is breath taking. She is a literary treasure. Do not miss Angel Landing or any of Hoffman's lovely books.
Alice hoffman has become my favorite author. This book was just another in a long list of great reads! I highly recommend it!
I really loved this book. It kept my attention and it was devastatingly beautiful. It was not, by any means, a true love story like that of Nicolas Sparks, but rather a love story in its own catagory.
