The Rules of Magic – Staff Review – Haley
Magic, witches, and the origin story of the crazy aunts from Practical Magic? Yes please! Alice Hoffman’s prequel to her beloved Practical Magic follows the lives of siblings Franny, Jet, and Vincent. From the summer of their youth spent with their aunt, through their lives, this is a wonderful addition to the stories of the Owens witches.
Having read most of Alice Hoffman’s books, and enjoyed them all, I was excited to start this book. True to the first novel, the siblings endure the curse all Owens witches must face, and while trying to avoid love, this is truly a love story at heart.
