Alice Hoffman, the bestselling author of such beloved novels as Practical Magic and Seventh Heaven, has written a powerful story of love that shows why she has been called a "born storyteller" (Entertainment Weekly).

Tim O'Brien, New York Times bestselling author of The Things They Carried

Philadelphia Inquirer

White Horses will reverberate in reader’s imaginations for a long time.”

San Francisco Chronicle

“A stunning mix of folk myth and starved contemporary lives—as Hoffman again displays a unique ability to dignify a certain brand of obsession (Billy the Kid in a Camero—made believable) and to dramatize the awakening of a slumbering consciousness.”

“Sexually charged…almost hypnotic.”

Publishers Weekly

“Memorable…striking in its emotional implications.”
