When the beautiful and precocious sisters Sally and Gillian Owens are orphaned at a young age, they are taken to a small Massachusetts town to be raised by their eccentric aunts, who happen to dwell in the darkest, eeriest house in town. As they become more aware of their aunts’ mysterious and sometimes frightening powers—and as their own powers begin to surface—the sisters grow determined to escape their strange upbringing by blending into “normal” society. But both find that they cannot elude their magic-filled past. And when trouble strikes—in the form of a menacing backyard ghost—the sisters must not only reunite three generations of Owens women but embrace their magic as a gift—and their key to a future of love and passion. Funny, haunting, and shamelessly romantic, Practical Magic is bewitching entertainment.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Charmingly told, and a good deal of fun.”  New York Times Book Review
“One of her most lyrical works…Hoffman is at her best.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Written with a light hand and rhythm…Practical Magic has the pace of a fairy tale but the impact of accomplished fiction.” People
“A beautiful, moving book about the power of love and the desires of the heart.” Denver Post
“Magic, fantasy, and full-tilt love-at-first-sight have figured in all of Hoffman’s sexy, funny, and endearing novels, but they blossom as they never have before…Hoffman has created a cosmic romance leavened with just the right touch of pragmatism and humor.”  Booklist (starred review)
“Hoffman’s best since Illumination Night…The dialogue is always on target, particularly the squabbling between siblings, and, as usual, weather plays a portentous role. Readers will relish this magical tale.”  Publishers Weekly
“Master storyteller Hoffman spins an unusual yarn about the Owens sisters…Narrator Moore’s forlorn alto, with its slightly sardonic edge, seems the perfect vehicle for this dark comedy.”   AudioFile
