‘What is it that makes American authors excel at depicting marriage? Alice Hoffman’s The Marriage of Opposites is one of the best novels on the subject . . . not least because the opposites of its title embrace not just gender but race, class and religion . . . Hoffman’s sensuous prose is ideally suited to describing the landscape . . . As intoxicating as the finest island rum’ (Independent on The Marriage of Opposites)
‘Hoffman is a master of evocatively described places . . . This captivating novel transports the reader to a sensual world of lush tropical landscapes, colonial opulence and conflicted passions’ (The Lady on The Marriage of Opposites)
‘Alice Hoffman’s fictionalised biography of Rachel Pizzarro’s life is an evocative, sensitive and historically rich portrayal of a woman living ahead of her time’ (The Observer on The Marriage of Opposites)

This is a very well described drama, and I enjoyed it.
The struggles these women had,and sacrifices they made,
I could not help thinking of all those families running from
conflict throughout the world. I recommend this book.
