Alice Hoffman is one of my favorite contemporary authors. Her books Turtle Moon and Practical Magic turned me into a fan of magical realism, only then making me able to graduate to the masters like Garcia Marquez. This new novel is her best in years. Three sisters (the Storys) spend a childhood emersed in their own imaginary world and language. As the sisters grow up, each must meet her own destiny without the comfort of one another or their imaginary world. It is a moving tale of love and forgiveness. Heartbreaking, really, but Hoffman's prose is, as always, mesmerizing.
