Book: Skylight Confessions
Authoress: Alice Hoffman
Available formats: Hardcover, Paperback, Kindle, Audio
Genre: Adult Fiction | Magical Realism
Goodreads: Skylight Confessions
My summary: In a moment of utter desperation Arlyn whispers a promise to love the next man she encounters. What follows is the twisted ghostly infused tale of their love, marriage, and the mistakes that plagued them.
My say: Skylight Confessions was like a walk through a thick dense fog. While the writing was magical, the lines between reality and magic remained lost in the haze. Despite my love for magical realism - this book never soothed my ache for happiness and resolution.
My recommendation: Alice Hoffman fans should check this one out from their local library.
My star rating: 2 stars
Kiddie-o-meter: The characters in this novel stumble and suffer through the side-effects of everything from premarital sex to drug abuse, infidelity, and the dangers of not paying attention to your children.
My final say: If you have never tried Alice Hoffman, forgo this one for Practical Magic. Have you seen or read Practical Magic? If so did you relate more to Sally or Gillian?
