I picked up The Story Sisters in our lending library at work. Initially, the book grabbed my interest and the author, Alice Hoffman, sounded familiar to me. Not until the middle of the book did I realize that I read Skylight Confessions and wasn’t a huge Hoffman fan. The Story Sisters is a strange tale of a three sisters coming of age. Hoffman’s main character develops a fantasy land to help her manage the grim recollections of a brutal childhood trauma that ultimately destroys her. Sadly, this novel didn’t capture my interest.
