Alice Hoffman casts her spell over a Long Island neighborhood filled with dreamers and dreams. In a dazzling series of family portraits, she evokes the world of the Samuelson's - a family torn apart by tragedy and divorce. Told in alternating voices, these stories are both disturbing and healing, each a lesson of survival and a reminder of the ties of blood and the power of friendship. Jane Smiley has said that "a reader is in good hands with Alice Hoffman, " and once again in her expert hands, everyday life is magically transformed.

I loved this book. Couldn't put it down. Yes, there is a lot of sadness involved, but Hoffman always manages to make it bearable for the reader. Her characters, storylines and style of writing are unique and magical.
