Overview
A modern chronicle of a marriage and a bittersweet exploration of an extraordinary passion from the New York Times bestselling author of The Rules of Magic.

Beginning on the night of the Grand Illumination, a festival of lanterns held each summer on Martha's Vineyard, Illumination Night follows the lives of a young blond giant who is as beautiful as he is frightening; an old woman at the end of her life whose last mission is to save her granddaughter's soul; a family torn apart by a wife's fears and a husband's unrealized desires--and the high school girl who comes to Martha's Vineyard against her will, who steals husbands and cars, and who will bring everyone together in a web of yearning, sin, and ultimate redemption. Both riveting and reflective, this is a story of "parenthood and friendship, self-protection and generosity, dream and disillusionment" (Newsday) that brings to light the talent that has made Alice Hoffman an acclaimed bestselling author.
