"A spectacular novel" (Susan Isaacs Washington Post Book World)

"A captivating and truly original novel" (Cosmopolitan)

"Alice Hoffman is at the top of her form in her latest novel... The triumphs of Turtle Moon lie in its humane insights and compassionate epiphanies; its lustrous prose and its seductive landscape" (Boston Globe)

Format: Paperback
This is a great book, dealing with a hot month in Florida, which tends to make people a little crazy. A woman is murdered and a troubled boy disappears - his mother searches for him and the search leads her to unexpected passion. Billed as a 'thriller', I found it more of a drama. Though there is a twist near the end, it is the boy and his mother who are the key characters in the book. His pain and sadness will stay with you.

I really loved this book. I have read several Alice Hoffman books, but this was my favourite to date. In other novels a mystical/magical element would probably irritate me, but in Alice Hoffman's beautiful books, and this one particularly it is not over done, it is subtle, and intriguing. The Florida heat crackles off the pages, you can almost smell the swamp, and see the turtles as they make their weary way to the sea. Hoffmans portrayl of a troubled young boy is brilliantly done.

If you have never read Hoffman before, prepare yourself for a real rollercoaster of emotions.

The pivotal characters; the embittered boy and his frustrated mother are truly believable - you want to take the boy and hold him tight for his compassion and love for the small baby, which he rescues after her mother is murdered. As usual the characters, who are given smaller roles underpin the story. They punctuate the novel, sometimes only briefly, yet they stay true to the development of the storyline.

You will enjoy Alice Hoffman's metaphoric style of writing but don't think that this will be an easy read. You can't simply put one of her books down and forget about it. The characters will become a part of your life and even when you finish the book you will still want to know what happens to the boy, his mum, the baby and all of the others who make this novel, as with most of Hoffman's truly captivating.

By Cloggie Downunder TOP 500 REVIEWER on 28 Aug. 2013
Format: Paperback
Turtle Moon is the tenth stand-alone novel by American author, Alice Hoffman. Verity, Florida is a town that is home to an unusual number of divorced women, and Lucy Rosen is just one of them. It is also a place where the heat in May causes a sort of madness that makes people do things they may later regret. When Lucy's neighbour, Karen Wright is found murdered in her apartment, Lucy soon finds herself involved in the investigation: her twelve-year-old son Keith is missing, along with Karen's fourteen-month-old daughter. Julian Cash, a forbidding policeman with a fierce German shepherd, sees through Lucy's attempts to protect her son. But it's mad May and he also finds it difficult to keep his hands off Lucy. This enchanting Hoffman offering has an original plot that somehow includes a high school reunion, a murder, an apparent kidnapping and tracker dogs; it has a cast of wonderful characters including an angel, a remarkable foster mother, and a troubled teen. Hoffman conveys the feel of this unique town with consummate ease: the Florida heat is almost palpable. Jodi Picoult has said that Alice Hoffman is her favourite writer, and it is easy Hoffman's influence in her work. Just magical.

I enjoyed this book which I would say was a top end holiday read (i.e. not your Captain Corelli's Mandolin but not simple like your Jackie Collin's novel). Had that slightly mystical southern american feel. It wove sad stories with an uplifting yet realistic ending and a little romance.
Pretty good.
