Back cover copy

The acclaimed author of such New York Times bestsellers as Here on Earth and Turtle Moon presents a "sexually charged...almost hypnotic" novel (Publishers Weekly) about men, women, romance, and real life. When Teresa was a little girl, she went to sleep with dreams in her head -- dreams of dark-eyed, fearless heroes on white horses who would sweep her away. The men her mother told her about were a special breed, and someday, Teresa vowed, she would find one of her own. But now, as the adult Teresa negotiates life and love, she begins to understand that fairy tales don't always come true -- and that passion isn't always the stuff of dreams. With this thought-provoking, powerful story, Alice Hoffman once again reveals herself as "one of our quirkiest and most interesting novelists" (Jane Smiley, USA Today).show more
