Thanks so much for sending me this book! I've actually already read it but I will include the JE that I wrote:

If you meet someone who smells like sulphur it is a good bet that you shouldn't
a. adopt him and bring him home or
b. beat him up or
c. take him as your lover,
wouldn't you think? So what would you do with him? One character thinks he should have been left in Boston where he belongs. I don't think the author intended that to be funny but it made me laugh.
And did you know that sulphur smells like rotten eggs? The author says sulphur or fire or anger. The love affair may never have started if he actually smelled like sulphur.
OK, I'll get off this subject.
The book is about a poor, orphaned criminal boy who is adopted into a family in the country. He is needy and ruthless and the daughter falls completely in love with him. The story contains much of the magic that Alice Hoffman is famous for, but is darker and coarser. Other than that, judge it for yourself.

I'll be sending this on in a book box.

Very well-developed characters in this book - I think that is what struck me most about this story. All were shaped by events in their past. Liked the New England setting.
