'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
