My favorite author,Alice Hoffman
« on: August 25, 2014, 04:10:29 PM »
I think many of you girls would enjoy her.She is really good at women's relationships and all her books have an element of magic to them.Many take place in New England,where I grew up. She also uses the history of the time to great effect in her novels.Yesterday,I read one of her newest,The Museum of Extraordinary Things,cover to cover and enjoyed it immensely.Some other favorites: Here on Earth,At Risk,Turtle Moon,The Story Sisters,Practical Magic. Enjoy!!

Practical Magic is my favorite have also read Turtle Moon. Here On Earth was too dark for me and quit halfway through. I like her style.
