This story is pure Alice Hoffman magic.
The short stories that connected all throughout the book just really kept my attention and the characters were all very "real" in the stories/chapters.
Each story really does not give the reader enough time to get to know or even understand any of the characters introduced in each story.
Good read, best to take time and notes...or read twice to get full impact.Published 1 day ago by Amazon Customer

It was a little hard to follow, but when I was through, I thought, I should read this again and maybe I would understand it better. And, yes, I would read it again.Published 5 days ago by Amazon Customer

It was great to begin with and grew tiresome with short stories of relatives of the founders. Some were interesting but others were strange.Published 12 days ago by C. Resko
