5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging and atmospheric short story. An excellent introduction to Hoffman's work.
Reviewed in Canada on October 18, 2020
Having never read anything by Alice Hoffman, I was uncertain what to expect. I purchased this short story as a way to try her writing without committing to a full length novel. WOW!  Now I know why she is a best-selling author!

The story told SO much in SO few words... much like the protagonist of the story, young Adeline.  Atmosphere fairly reeked from the pages so that you could feel the beach rocks in your hands, hear the gulls, and smell the salty sea brine.

Adeline's mother in this story was only twenty-nine years old, but even her youth couldn't excuse her actions, nor her conduct toward Adeline.

This was a short story which displays empathy and cunning while simultaneously engaging the reader. Now I cannot wait to read one of Hoffman's novels.
