Fiction • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

The bewitching author Alice Hoffman has written another work of startling lyrical beauty about the alchemical nature of love and about loss, choices, and consequences. The novel follows the intergenerational links among three women, bestowing layers of truth, and acts of bravery and betrayal, with a liberal dusting of the supernatural. Set primarily in London in the present on the advent of a wedding, the story shifts back in time twice to reveal the ultimate catalyst that brings about each woman's destiny. Hoffman's fairy tale of doomed, misguided love advances toward a crescendo of healing and hope. Promising wonder, Nancy Travis's clear enunciations bridge the thin boundary between reality and the dream life. Her expressive and modulated delivery is the enchanting vessel for Hoffman's luminous prose. A.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2008]
