Top Customer Reviews
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.
