I give this book 3.5 stars. It's a quick read about a Jewish girl and her family in the time of the Inquisition. I don't usually read books about religion but this one caught my attention and it ended up being a story about family, friendship and love but also about jealousy, hate and lack of knowledge that always leads to terrible consequences. It's a small story that tells how a young woman escapes from her home in search of a place that will accept her. This book reminded me of the Second World War and all the lives lost. Bottom line: we should never forget who we are and stay true to ourselves no matter what. ( )

I listened to this narrator (Jenna Lamia) read other stories and I was fine with her work but in this one she uses a Spanish accent that I am struggling with. Between that and the subject matter which is not a high interest to me, I'm going to "abandon" and move onto another Hoffman novel. DNF

I went into this book thinking that I was getting another of Hoffman's signature stories infused with magic and witchcraft (I mean, come on, the title is Incantation!), but instead I got some decidedly non-magical historical fiction! The story is set during the time of the Spanish Inquisition, following a young girl just coming of age, who discovers the truth that her family are secretly Jewish. Her story is pretty simple to follow, and heartrending when you think about the horrific acts of brutality that were carried out in the name of Christianity, but I felt like we were missing a bit of connection to the character. Estrella is disconnected from the truth about her faith, and she's honestly more concerned with the tension with her overly strict grandmother and with her best friend, so I didn't feel like the themes were that effectively laid out. The religious aspects of her family life seem pale in comparison to the small hints about her mother's Kabballah magic, and Estrella's driving force seems to be figuring out how to be in love with Andres (her best friend's fiancé and a Christian). With more time to flesh out the story, time period, and characters, I feel like this would be a fascinating story (on par with Hoffman's later historical Jewish novels like The World That We Knew), but in this shortened novella aimed largely at the teen market I feel like we're left hanging a bit.

Very Sad

A beautiful but very sad book. Be prepared to cry when you read this book. It is beautifully written but very sad. ( )

Alice Hoffman can tell a story without much of a plot and still end up with a win. She has a talent of peppering her work with the most profound sentiments. You’ll be reading and come to a passage that spurs you to stop and write it down. Before you know it, you have a long list of quotes that speaks to you. Authors life Alice Hoffman leave me wondering how someone can have so much wisdom and get it out on paper so effectively.

Incantation is a devastating story. It recounts the historical persecution of the Spanish Jews. First they were forced to recant their Jewish faith and become Christian, and later were persecuted for perpetrating a falsehood. No win situation. Estrella's family is in this Jewish/Christian group, but she has been kept in the dark about it her whole life. Now the truth is coming to the surface and jealousy will ignite a hatred that motivates her best friend to betray her. Members of her family will receive the worst punishment imaginable, burning at the stake. For this reason, children should be mature enough to handle human suffering before reading. ( )
