Praise for Seventh Heaven

"A pleasure...Seventh Heaven is not only entertaining--it gives one new respect for tender suburban dreams."--Los Angeles Times Book Review

"A consummate joy...magical."--The Washington Post Book World

"Before you know it, you're half in love with the ordinary people who inhabit this book; you're seduced by their susceptibility to the remarkable."--The New Yorker

"Seamless storytelling...vivid characters...a lively pace and plenty of surprises."--USA Today

"Powerful...sparkling...Seventh Heaven is a major accomplishment."--The Boston Globe

"Stirring, far [her] best book."--Time

"Brilliant and astonishing...Suffused with magic. If ever a book deserved to be called 'haunting, ' this is it. In every sense of the word."--Cosmopolitan

"Terrific...Seventh Heaven is one of those rare novels so abundant with life it seems to overflow its own pages...Her storytelling gifts are those of a master."--Newsweek

"Beautifully told."--People

"Literary magic...A beautiful, deceptively simple story about ordinary life in an ordinary housing development nestled beside the Southern State Parkway...Hoffman breaks down the barriers of time, distance, and reticence. She takes us inside the houses of Hemlock Street and shows us how our ordinary neighbors--like ouselves--are both unique and universal, and worthy of love."--Newsday

"In the full flowering of her extraordinary talent, Hoffman has produced a wise, poignant and uplifting novel luminous with the sensitive evocation of ordinary lives...As usual she tells more than a compulsively readable story. She does magic, she unsettles you and she leaves you feeling emotionally purged and satisfied."--Publishers Weekly

"[A] deft blend of magical realism and sociological truth."--Chicago Tribune
