Summary

In this prequel to Practical Magic, we meet the Aunts: sisters Frances and Jet, and Vincent, their brother. Their mother, Susanna, knew they were unique: pale, red-haired Franny, who could commune with birds; shy, beautiful Jet, who knows what others are thinking; and charismatic Vincent, built for trouble. 

Susanna sets some rules of magic: no walking in the moonlight, no red shoes, no wearing black, no cats, no crows, no candles and absolutely no books about magic. But, desperate to uncover who they really are, the Owens siblings head down a life-altering course, filled with secrets and truths, devastation and joy, and magic and love.

Good story, unfortunate reader

I liked the book, but was not keen on the narrator. I found the delivery awkward at times, particularly the “voices” put on, especially those of the young child characters at the end.

So unusual, never knew what was going to happen but really engaging and intriguing. Loved it.
