"Illumination Night," by Alice Hoffman

Illumination Night - Alice Hoffman

The Plot: In a small town in Martha's Vineyard, a married couple with a young son bicker amongst themselves and worry over their son's small size. Next door, a rebellious teenage girl exiled to live with her grandmother falls in love with the husband next door.


The Good:

  • Lovely language and setting, as always with Hoffman.
  • Interesting magical realism, again - a Hoffman trademark.


The Bad:

  • No real solid plot.
  • A pleasant read, but not much else.
