In February 2021 she published a family tree in a newsletter. Here are some visuals in case you can't get it:

Feb 2021: I tried to read it again in anticipation of Alice Hoffman's Facebook "book club" but I only got about 1/3 of the way. I decided to DNF. I was choosing other things to do vs. read it so I'm going to move on.

---------------------------------------

original review:
Go into it thinking each Chapter is a "short story" rather than a chapter in a novel. Inter-connected short stories.

I do wish I understood how the characters were related a little more. That info kind of got lost when listening to an audiobook.

I think it's interesting how each generation lived without needing to know about the former generations. Family bonds are usually pretty strong but it does fade and life goes on. We know what is buried in the garden, we know why the rifle doesn't work, etc.. but the future generations didn't ...

Q: Is there one true thing you learned from your characters in The Red Garden?
AH: I learned that what happens in the past resonates for us in the present, and that forgiveness can change everything.

Bear, red garden, town pretty consistent. Folklore of a town. Spans 300 years. ( )

This is an exquisite collection of short stories about the people who live in the isolated town of Blackwell, Massachussets -- and I don't usually care for short stories.

I haven't read a lot of Alice Hoffman's books, but the ones I have read show her to be a writer very much in tune with the secret magic in life, as well as -- if you'll forgive the hackneyed phrase -- the magic of the human heart.

And Hoffman doesn't just tell the stories of the humans of Blackwell. Bears, eels, apple trees, residences, a river, and the eponymous red garden all have important stories of their own, although they are never point of view characters. In fact, I should confess that one of the reasons I liked this book so much was because of the repeated, vivid presence of bears weaving in and out of the human narratives.

The stories are all stand-alone, but each new story weaves an increasingly detailed and rich tapestry of Blackwell and its environs, as people -- and homes and eels and bears and ghosts -- carry forward the heritage of almost-forgotten ancestors. ( )

It was like reading the same story over and over again. ( )

This is a beautiful story about a town. It's not about a particular person, or even about a family. It is about a town - Blackwell, Massachusetts. It begins when the town was founded in 1745, and it follows the Brady family descendants up to the present day. The book is told in a series of stories that are all connected even though all are in different time frames. The book is linked by the Eel River, the Blacktop Mountains, the presence of bears and by the Brady family and its descendants. Ms. Hoffman's magical prose and literate writing skills carries the reader along into her magical word. I listened to this as an audible book, and really enjoyed the narration as well as the story. Its' a mystical dreamland that we are invited into in this book. ( )
