Reviews

"Hoffman's characters are always moving back and forth, challenging our perceptions, daring us to judge them. Her sentences tremble with allegory. . . . In the end, The Story Sisters, for all its magic realism, is about a family navigating through motherhood, sisterhood, daughterhood. It's Little Women on mushrooms. (Bookish sisters beware)."
- New York Times Book Review

"Hoffman is celebrated for her ability to conjure plausible alternative realities, to sprinkle her landscapes with witches and other mythical creatures, while keeping her stories closely tethered to familiar terrain. There's a mysticism that swirls about her works but, like a late-morning fog, it eventually burns off to reveal a physical and emotional topography that most all of us can recognize."
- Chicago Tribune

"This bewitching novel explores the bonds of sisterhood like a haunting modern fairy tale."
- Glamour

"Any new book by Hoffman is an occasion to rejoice, as is the case with The Story Sisters."
- Sacramento Bee

"The sisters' struggle to grow and thrive in the real world will keep you riveted to the pages of this heartbreaking novel about the powers and limits of love."
- Redbook

"When it comes to blending magic and the mundane routines of life, there's no finer writer than Alice Hoffman -- but even she has outdone herself with her latest novel. The Story Sisters hearkens back to the classic fairy tale, where one must suffer fear and loss before stumbling upon a happy ending. Hoffman reminds us with every sentence that words have the power to transport us to alternate worlds, to heal a broken heart, and to tie us irrevocably to the people we love."
- Jodi Picoult, author of Handle With Care

"The always dazzling Hoffman has outdone herself in this bewitching weave of psychologically astute fantasy and shattering realism....this is an
entrancing and romantic drama shot through with radiant beauty and belief in human resilience and transformation."
- Booklist (starred review)

"Painfully moving....there are beautiful moments throughout."
- Kirkus Reviews

"Keeps readers heartbroken yet spellbound, turning the pages."
- Library Journal
