The author of such bestselling novels as "Seventh Heaven" and "Practical Magic" creates her most glorious fictional world to date in a spellbinding tale of love and obsession. After nearly 20 years of living in California, March Murray and her daughter Gwen return to March's small Massachusetts hometown. Thrust into the world of her past, March slowly comes to realize the complexity of the choices made by those around her, including Hollis, the boy she loved--now the man she can't seem to stay away from.
From the Publisher:
A middle-aged woman, along with her fifteen-year-old daughter, returns to her small Massachusetts hometown for the funeral of the housekeeper who raised her and finds herself thrust into the lives of the people she left behind
Author Bio
Alice Hoffman
Hoffman is the daughter of a real estate salesman and a social worker. When they divorced, she was raised by her mother on Long Island. A voracious reader, Hoffman has had a lifelong interest in magic and fairy tales, and her reading has had an obvious effect on her own writing, which tends to incorporate fantasy and myth. She has a B.A. from Adelphi College and an M.F.A. from Stanford.


San Francisco Chronicle Book Review
"At the end of 'Wuthering Heights,' someone viewing the graves of Heathcliff and Catherine wonders how anyone could imagine unquiet slumbers for the lovers resting in that quiet earth. Despite the many wonders that Hoffman has unearthed, you can only wish that she had left them rest in peace." - Alix Madrigal 08/24/1997

"Hoffman's fans won't be disappointed by the airy-fairy 'Here on Earth,' her 12th novel, which weaves all of Hoffman's usual themes into a dreamy, intricate family melodrama, complete with alcoholism, wife-beating, obsessional love and whiffs of murder....Still, this novel's comfy, confident voice is enough to lure you into an armchair for the better part of an evening....It's curiously pleasurable, and reading it induces only a minimum of guilt." - Courtney Weaver 09/09/1997

Washington Post Book World
"[D]ark and wonderful....Alice Hoffman has never seen deeper inside her characters....'Here on Earth' is Alice Hoffman's most powerful and moving novel to date, and one of the finest fictional explorations of family love..." - Howard Frank Mosher 08/31/1997

Literary Review
"Daringly old-fashioned, Hoffman's writing is wholesome without being proselytising or dull." - Deborah Bosley October 1997
