Here on Earth by Alice Hoffman
I am beginning to have a love/hate relationship with Alice Hoffman’s writing. I can’t resist picking up her books when I see them at book sales but then for about the first third of every book I am chastising myself for reading such nonsensical chick-lit. …THEN I get drawn in and attached to the characters and I can’t wait to finish what ultimately becomes an anti-climatic ending. This story involved an abusive relationship, which is the only reason I can think of as to why it may have made Oprah’s Book Club.
