An evocative work that traces the lives of the various occupants of an old Massachusetts house over a span of two hundred years. In a rare and gorgeous departure, beloved novelist Alice Hoffman weaves a web of tales, all set in Blackbird House. This small farm on the outer reaches of Cape Cod is a place that is as bewitching and alive as the characters we meet: Violet, a brilliant girl who is in love with books and with a man destined to betray her; Lysander Wynn, attacked by a halibut as big as a horse, certain that his life is ruined until a boarder wearing red boots arrives to change everything; Maya Cooper, who does not understand the true meaning of the love between her mother and father until it is nearly too late. From the time of the British occupation of Massachusetts to our own modern world, family after family's lives are inexorably changed, not only by the people they love but by the lives they lead inside Blackbird House. These interconnected narratives are as intelligent as they are haunting, as luminous as they are unusual. Inside Blackbird House more than a dozen men and women learn how love transforms us and how it is the one lasting element in our lives. The past both dissipates and remains contained inside the rooms of Blackbird House, where there are terrible secrets, inspired beauty, and, above all else, a spirit of coming home.… (mere)

I love the idea of this story and I really love a couple of Hoffman's stories but not this one.

I hope I remember Violet's first story and then her second story with Lion Jr., the evolution of the summer kitchen, the sweet peas and her describing the days as the color of blue or the color of peach but I'm okay if the other parts wash away.

I imagine it was this book that gave me a great dream last night of "my house". It wasn't my current house but perhaps my dream house. I hope I remember that dream. :(Re-found my review, I've forgotten) ( )

This collection of interconnected stories all take place in a house on Blackbird Hill. In Alice Hoffman's mystical style, a blackbird turns white, a widow wears red in mourning until you can't tell "her insides from her outsides," and real boys seem like ghosts while ghosts are mistaken for real boys. The multigenerational time span allows Hoffman to showcase her usual themes of love and loss on the great wheel of life. ( )

A series stories revolve around a particular house in this novel. The stories all focus on the owners of the house at a particular time in history from the sailor who built the house for his wife and family, then promptly took his son to sea and drowned, to a modern day woman dealing with losses who inherits the house from her parents. A couple of stories were exceptional. I particularly liked the story of the warbride who develops a relationship with her mother in law who tries her best not to like her. ( )

What a beautiful way to connect so many time periods to one place. ( )

After many Hoffman books, still my favorite! ( )

It was said that boys should go on their first sea voyage at the age of ten, but surely this notion was never put forth by anyone's mother.

I read books as though I were eating apples, core and all, starved for those pages, hungry for every word that told me about things I didn’t yet have, but still wanted terribly, wanted until it hurt.
