Alice Hoffman - The Story Sisters (2nd Hand Paperback)
A haunting and emotionally satisfying novel from a much-loved and critically acclaimed author, which weaves fairy tale and gritty realism together to dazzlingly effect.
The Story Sisters charts the lives of three sisters - Elv, Claire and Meg.
Each has a fate she must meet alone: one on a country road, one in the streets of Paris, and one in the corridors of her own imagination.
Inhabiting their world are a charismatic man who cannot tell the truth, a neighbour who is not who he appears to be, a clumsy boy in Paris who falls in love and stays there, a detective who finds his heart's desire, and a demon who will not let go.
What does a mother do when one of her children goes astray? How does she save one daughter without sacrificing the others? How deep can love go, and how far can it take you?
At once a coming-of-age tale, a family saga, and a love story of erotic longing, The Story Sisters sifts through the miraculous and the mundane as the girls become women and their choices haunt them, change them and, finally, redeem them.

" . . . It's sad and beautiful and awful and delicious! There is divorce, drug addiction, recovery, gardens, cancer, death, Paris, art, inner growth and a wedding. There is so much more emotion than I can describe. It's my new favourite book." - Goodreads Review.
