Book of Magic
Author(s): Alice Hoffman
Filled with secrets and splendour and light and dark - it casts a spell' Matt Haig, author of The Midnight Library
The Owens family finally confronts the curse that has marked their family for centuries in the thrilling and unforgettable conclusion to the beloved Practical Magic series
The Owens family has been cursed in matters of love for over three-hundred years. In Massachusetts, beloved aunt Jet Owens hears the deathwatch beetle, a signal she has only seven days to live. She has finally discovered the secret to breaking the curse, but is out of time to help.
And she is not the only one in danger - the curse is already at work. The new Owens generation is unaware of the family's witchcraft lineage and of the curse. But one of the young sisters has fallen in love.
After declaring their love for each other, her boyfriend falls into a coma, spurring three generations of Owens women and a long-lost brother to venture back to where it all began and use their gifts to break the curse once and for all.
Doing so threatens to destroy everything the family has fought so hard to protect. How much will they give up for the greatest gift of all?
PRAISE for ALICE HOFFMAN
Beautiful, harrowing, a major contribution to twenty-first century literature - Toni Morrison
I am still reeling from The Dovekeepers - from the history Alice Hoffman illuminates, from the language she uses to bring these women to life. This novel is a testament to the human spirit and to love rising from the ashes of war. But most of all, this novel is one that will never be forgotten by a reader - Jodi Picoult
'Oh, what a book this is! Hoffman's exploration of the world of good and evil, and the constant contest between them, is unflinching; and the humanity she brings to us - it is a glorious experience.' Elizabeth Strout
