Not sure if I have read this before or not, so when I saw it for $1 in lifeline I had to pick it up :)

Found in my goodie bag at the Melbourne 2007 BookCrossing Convention. I've enjoyed other books by Hoffman so am looking forward to reading this too.

Journal Entry 4 by freesia from Perth City, Western Australia Australia on Friday, October 19, 2007
I've enjoyed other books by Alice Hoffman - she has a great kind of magic realism way of describing landscapes, memories and awkwardnesses between people. However, this was just flawed.

The Heathcliff-like figure of Hollis is so dark and tormented he seemed a caricature, like Jilly Cooper's all-powerful malevolent conductor Rannaldini. What I just didn't get was the way March fell under his spell so easily. She's initially presented as a capable, thoughtful wife and mother and businesswoman, and to see her suddenly consenting to all these restrictions and ignoring her daughter is painful.

The ending is just too convenient - that amount of gloom and darkness doesn't just suddenly disappear with one death. I read the book with relish, but I just wanted it to be slightly more psychologically reasonable - is that too much to ask? Frustrating.
