Here On Earth by Alice Hoffman

Here On Earth

This was one of those books I picked up a long time ago and it’s been sitting on my shelf collecting dust.  Modern American fiction/chick lit is not exactly my favorite these days, and this book reinforced why I don’t care for it.

In Here on Earth, a married woman with a 15 year old daughter returns to her hometown in Massachusetts.  The reason for the trip is the funeral of the family housekeeper, who was really the woman who raised her, since her own mother died when she was young.  While there, she rekindles a flame with a man who was also raised in her home, only to find out that the relationship is wrong on so many levels.

It had a story that could have at least made it a page turner, but the writing ended up being more chick-lit than thriller.  Not my cup of tea.
