Can’t Wait Wednesday : The Book of Magic (Practical Magic #2) by Alice Hoffman

Can't Wait Wednesday

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was originally created by Breaking the Spine.  Unfortunately Breaking the Spine are no longer hosting so I’m now linking my posts up to Wishful Endings Can’t Wait Wednesday. Don’t forget to stop over, link up and check out what books everyone else is waiting for.  If you want to take part, basically, every Wednesday, we highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week my book is : The Book of Magic (Practical Magic #2) by Alice Hoffman. Oh my giddy aunt.  This book.  I love this world, these characters and now this book is on the horizon.  I nearly had a conniption when I saw this. I’m okay, I’m breathing and all is well, but, this book!  Give it to me now.  Pretty please.

bookofmagicMaster storyteller Alice Hoffman brings us the conclusion of the Practical Magic series in a spellbinding and enchanting final Owens novel brimming with lyric beauty and vivid characters.

The Owens family has been cursed in matters of love for over three-hundred years but all of that is about to change. The novel begins in a library, the best place for a story to be conjured, when beloved aunt Jet Owens hears the deathwatch beetle and knows she has only seven days to live. Jet is not the only one in danger—the curse is already at work.

A frantic attempt to save a young man’s life spurs three generations of the Owens women, and one long-lost brother, to use their unusual gifts to break the curse as they travel from Paris to London to the English countryside where their ancestor Maria Owens first practiced the Unnamed Art. The younger generation discovers secrets that have been hidden from them in matters of both magic and love by Sally, their fiercely protective mother. As Kylie Owens uncovers the truth about who she is and what her own dark powers are, her aunt Franny comes to understand that she is ready to sacrifice everything for her family, and Sally Owens realizes that she is willing to give up everything for love.

The Book of Magic is a breathtaking conclusion that celebrates mothers and daughters, sisters and brothers, and anyone who has ever been in love.

Expected publication : October 2021

    Wow, hasn’t it been 20+ years since the first? Cool that’s she’s coming back to the story!

      Now you mention it it probably has been 20 years since the first – but she has revisited the world twice since to bring us 2 books set before Practical Magic and providing the family history. It looks like this will be the concluding story though.

      Yes, the last book wasn’t my favourite of hers but I still enjoyed it. I was so excited when I saw this one pop up and not too long a wait.
