Hoffman is never sappy, yet her lyrical writing and flawed characters usually leave me sobbing. I've wanted to have the last paragraph of this book reproduced, framed, and given to every mother I know.
Alice Hoffman has to be one of my favorite authors, but I was disappointed by this story. Although it is beautifully written, and the characters are wonderful, it just stops. There is constant disappointment with the lives of the characters. You spend most of the book wanting a woman to find the child she gave up, and when she finally does look for the baby, you are given enormous disappointment. I do not think I would recommend this book to friends.
I've read many books by Alice Hoffman and for the most part have enjoyed them. This book was a definite disappointment for me. By the time I finally finished the book, I really didn't care how it turned out. I just wanted to be done.
