Inhaltsangabe

March Murray, along with her 15-year-old daughter, Gwen, returns to the small Massachusetts town where she grew up to attend the funeral of Judith Dale, the beloved housekeeper who raised her. After nearly 20 years of living in California, March is thrust into the world of her past. She finds that Mrs. Dale knew more of life than March could have ever suspected; that her brother Alan, whose tragic history has left him grief-stricken, has turned to alcohol as his only solace; and that Hollis, the boy she once loved, is the man she can't seem to stay away from.

Here on Earth is the dramatic and lyrical account of the joys of love, as well as the destruction that love can release. Erotic, disturbing, and compelling, this is without a doubt Alice Hoffman's most unforgettable novel.

    "Beautifully described atmosphere yet somewhat unsatisfactory story"

    Alice Hoffman is known for the atmosphere she creates in her novels and how she gives life to places (small towns in New England). She manages to do this in this novel again. The atmosphere is beautifully described and it is easy to imagine the cold, the ice, the snow. The speaker has a beautiful voice which transports the mood well. The story itself, however, remained somewhat unsatisfactory to me. It deals with domestic violence and how hard it is to get out of an abusive relationship. The characters are credible - and the author goes to great lengths to describe them. Yet we do not really learn what happens with them in the end and it seems the way the abusive character is gotten rid of at the end is just too easy. I appreciate the attempt of mixing the beauty of language with such an important and tough topic, but I'm not sure whether this is achieved. I fear that the story itself uses the same romanticism it criticizes.
