A moving novel of fear, desire, loss, and discovery on Martha’s Vineyard, from the New York Times–bestselling author of The Rules of Magic and Seventh Heaven.

Elizabeth Renny has only made two decisions of consequence in her seventy-plus years. While the first, marrying her husband, had adequate results, the second—deciding she could fly from her bedroom window—is less successful. But her flight sets in motion a series of events that will forever change the lives of six residents of Martha’s Vineyard: a young boy who refuses to grow, a wife stifled by her irrational anxiety, a husband tempted by the unknown, a girl flirting with disaster, a gentle giant tortured by his size, and an old woman with nothing to lose.
 
Praised as “an intelligent novel” by the New York Times and “achingly vivid” by Newsday, Illumination Night is a sparkling and heartbreaking narrative that explores marriage, friendship, youth, yearning, disillusionment, and desire, a book as bright and memorable as the festival of lanterns for which it is named.

I'd put this one up there with her better novels. Hoffman writes with keen perception and a style that draws you in.

I loved this book. The author has a way of saying things that you didn't even know you were feeling until it resonates. Amazing.
