Magic Lessons tells the story of the beginnings of the Owens' family, following the journey of Maria, the baby left in the snow and rescued by Hannah Owens. After tragedy forces her from her home, Maria travels from England to Curacao as an indentured servant, then to Salem, Massachusetts as the witch hunts have begun, and finally to New York. Along the way she gives birth to a daughter, Faith, who takes a different path from her mother.

Alice Hoffman has crafted a rich, complex tale that explores the darkness of human beings when confronted with the unknown. Hannah, Maria and Faith are all healers, working mostly with women providing both natural and magical remedies for ailments of the body and spirit. The scenes in Salem where Maria goes to find Faith's father are particularly frightening as we consider the current state of affairs when it comes to women.

I bought all three books in the series so will be starting the next one soon!

**Thank you to Edelweiss and Simon & Schuster for the chance to read this ARC in exchange for an honest review**

I finished this book in one day and found it very difficult to put it down. I loved learning the back story of Maria, her family, and the curse.

This is a prequel that rounds out the entire series. This is the story of Maria, how she came to have the name of Owens, and the love that taught her magic. Maria learns that even a witch with years of training can misunderstand visions and not magic can keep people from finding love if it's true.

The book takes you through Maria's life and how she learns to deal with her magic, true heartbreak, and true love. It leads perfectly into what we have already read in Practical Magic and The Rules of Magic and it was a pleasure to read how this amazing magical family started and the strength they get their magic from.

The pre-prequel to “Practical Magic”, this book takes us to the 1600s and the life of Maria Owens. Abandoned at birth, she is found and raised by the local witch in rural England. She proves to have great talent for magic, as well as being taught to read and write. When her adoptive mother is killed by a witch hunter, Maria finds her birth mother- also a witch. When her father makes a surprise reappearance, the three of them flee the area. They tell Maria she cannot stay with them, and she finds herself on the way to the New World, although not in the way that she thinks is happening. Maria ends up having a lot of adventures on her way to Salem, and they don’t end when she finds her way there. She ends up pronouncing a curse, that will keep any Owens from finding love for long- and also learns that love is, in the end, all that really matters.
While not quite as good as “Practical Magic” (nothing is), it’s a book I liked much better than I liked the middle book, “Rules of Magic”. It is a stay-up-all-night-reading-it book. Five stars. ( )

This was true magic, the making and unmaking of the world with paper and ink.
"To any man who ever loves an Owens, let this curse befall you, let your fate lead to disaster, let you be broken in body and soul, and may it be that you never recover."
Fate is what you make of it. You can make the best of it, or you can let it make the best of you.
Do as you will, but harm no one.
What you give will be returned to you threefold.
Fall in love whenever you can.
For candles were dangerous at sea, just as religion is dangerous on land.
