Publisher's Summary

Nora Silk doesn't really fit in on Hemlock Street, where everyhouse looks the same. She's divorced. She wears a charm bracelet and high heels and red toreador pants. And the way she raises her kids is a scandal. But as time passes, the neighbors start having second thoughts about Nora. The women's apprehension evolves into admiration. The men's lust evolves into awe. The children are drawn to her in ways they can't explain. And everyone on this little street in 1959 Long Island seems to sense the possibilities and perils of a different kind of future when they look at Nora Silk.

This extraordinary novel by the author of TheRiver King and Local Girls takes us back to a time when the exotic both terrified and intrigued us, and despite our most desperate attempts, our passions and secrets remained as stubbornly alive asthe weeds in our well-trimmed lawns.

    "Changing Times"

    I enjoyed this look at the shifting lives on a suburban street as 1959 turns to 1960. Not wholly realistic, almost like a dark fairy tale, quite haunting. Narration was good.

    "Strange jumble of stories mashed into one"
    What did you like best about Seventh Heaven? What did you like least?

    I liked the theme of women's lives at the end of the 50's and the changes they faced in the 1960's.
    What I liked least was the scene with the red shoes..........what?!? It was completely out of place and frankly, just silly.


    What could Alice Hoffman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Stick with one theme! So many themes gave the book no solid direction.


    Could you see Seventh Heaven being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No, I can't see it being made into a movie or TV series. Then again, some of the junk on TV now would be a close competitor.
