Journal Entry 1 by wingzimortwing from Gjøvik, Oppland fylke Norway on Saturday, July 24, 2010
I bought this on a holiday in Sweden a wile back. I have now read it and I liked it. I have not read anything by Hoffman earlier, maybe I should read something else by the same author.

From Amazon:
When the women in the Sparrow family reach thirteen, they develop a unique ability. In young Stella's case, the gift, which is both a blessing and a curse, is the ability to see a person's probable future. Stella foresees a gruesome murder, and tells her charming, feckless father about it, but it is too late - the murder has already been committed and suspicion falls on him.
Hoffman unlocks the caskets of family life and the secret history of a community in this magical story about young love and old love, about making choices - usually the wrong ones - about foresight and consequences, all suffused with the haunting scent of roses and wisteria, and the hum of bees on a summer evening.

This was an intriguing story about a family of women, each of whom develop some kind of gift, such as being able to see other people's dreams or other people's deaths.

I have offered this book in bookstogive's General Literature VBB.
