Description
In this 2003 novel from the author of Practical Magic, The Dovekeepers, and The Marriage of Opposites, the women of the Sparrow family have lived in New England for generations. Each is born in the month of March, and at the age of 13, each develops an unusual gift. Elinor can literally smell a lie. Her daughter Jenny can see people's dreams as they're dreaming them, while granddaughter Stella, newly a teenager, has developed the ability to see how other people will die. Ironically, it is their gifts that have kept Elinor and Jenny apart for the past 25 years—but it is one of Stella's premonitions that finally brings all three generations together at the family's ancestral home.

"[Alice] Hoffman has perfected her very own entrancing style of magical realism and mystical romance anchored to the moody, history-laden Massachusetts countryside.... [Her] cast of characters is unfailingly magnetic, from her eye-rolling teenagers to her wryly in-love seniors to her suddenly aflame fortysomethings, and the story she tells is as lush as it is suspenseful, as rich in earthy and sensuous detail as it is sweet and hopeful."—Booklist
