"A woman who leads a quiet life, keeping other people at a cool distance one day utters an idle wish to be struck by lightning -- & her wish is granted. Instead of killing her, this cataclysmic event marks a strange & powerful new beginning as the woman soon finds herself drawn into a passionate relationship with another survivor of a lightning strike, a mysterious stranger who harbors darks secrets. Their affair becomes the center of a riveting story of loss, love & redemption."
Alice Hoffman is one of my favorite authors & I've read everything she's written except for "Blackbird House" which is sitting on my bookshelf waiting for me to get to it. She's one of the few authors whose books I will go back & read a second time.
