Shelby is a character, by turns tragic and eccentric and touching, I’ll never forget. A remarkable story of a character I wasn’t at all sure would get her happy ending (her characters sometimes don’t!) but I was rooting for her and her merry cast of characters, every step of her journey. Ms. Hoffman does an extraordinary job of treading the delicate path between realistic dilemmas and a powerful sense of the magical, and this novel does that job beautifully. Shelby both breaks my heart and inspires me. You can buy the book here!
