Jodi Picoult has famously said that Alice Hoffman is her favorite writer. She describes The Story Sisters as a “classic fairy tale, where one must suffer fear and loss before stumbling upon a happy ending.

    I have read several Alice Hoffman books and think she is one of the best writers we have today. She truly weaves a beautiful story. This looks like another great work.

    I listened to this book on audio. Loved it. I love Alice Hoffman’s books. They are full of intrigue, suspense, love, hate and insight.

    Janflora, we couldn’t agree with you more!

    Liza, books on audio are great, aren’t they? Glad you enjoyed it, thanks for your thoughts.

    Having two sisters myself, it would be interesting to see sisterhood from a new perspective.

    Alice Hoffman books have always been on the top of my reading list. This book really interiges me because I am the sister of two and sister of two brothers. Over the years I started out as a sibling that learned to use her imagination to keep them all quite as being the oldest I was given the duty of making sure they did not get into trouble, fell asleep quickly,and were generally “good” when out of the parents sight.This is because Iwas the oldest child and to my parents this was my job.
    Over the years we have become distant and live far apart from one another. It would be interesting to she another sisters viewpoint. I often wonder what my sisters and brothers remember from those years we were so close. I wonder if they understood the pressure I was feeling at the time to make sure our parents were happy with our actions. I would like to read how other sisters and families remember their childhood and it;s dynamics.
