On the night that Arlyn Singer's father dies, she is certain her destiny will find her. Then John Moody shows up at her door, with no inkling that the tall, red-haired girl he has asked for directions will haunt him for the rest of his life.
Years later, Arlyn is gone, leaving her children, Sam and Blanca, alone with their distant father in the glass house they have made their home. Meredith Weiss is drawn to the troubled family and sets out to try and save them. But will her devotion be enough to pull them back from the fate they seem to have chosen for themselves?

Alice Hoffman's novels are a beguiling mix of the ordinary and the extraordinary. Bitter everyday occurrences - broken marriages, disappointed lives - are transformed under her tender gaze into magical, heart-breaking fables... Hoffman acknowledges the weight of this pain in mesmerisingly graceful prose, while the spareness of her style allows for hope's infinite possibilities in even the most daunting of circumstances -- Eithne Farry * Daily Mail *
A novel that plays with the subconcsious, weaving together magic and myth and a kind of realism. Hoffman is an excellent storyteller with a beguilingly mystical bent * Time Out *
A magical, haunting read, full of hidden passions, heartbreak and ghosts * Glamour *
The dream-like nature of the narrative is well constructed and oddly plausible -- Ludovic Hunter-Tilney * Financial Times *
