Fiction. Literature. Historical Fiction. HTML:In this " bewitching" (The New York Times Book Review) novel that traces a centuries-old curse to its source, beloved author Alice Hoffman unveils the story of Maria Owens, accused of witchcraft in Salem, and matriarch of a line of the amazing Owens women and men featured in Practical Magic and The Rules of Magic.
Where does the story of the Owens bloodline begin? With Maria Owens, in the 1600s, when she's abandoned in a snowy field in rural England as a baby. Under the care of Hannah Owens, Maria learns about the "Nameless Arts." Hannah recognizes that Maria has a gift and she teaches the girl all she knows. It is here that she learns her first important lesson: Always love someone who will love you back.

When Maria is abandoned by the man who has declared his love for her, she follows him to Salem, Massachusetts. Here she invokes the curse that will haunt her family. And it's here that she learns the rules of magic and the lesson that she will carry with her for the rest of her life. Love is the only thing that matters.

Magic Lessons is a "heartbreaking and heart-healing" (BookPage) celebration of life and love and a showcase of Alice Hoffman's masterful storytelling.

A beautifully written addition to the Practical Magic series. It has the perfect mixture of historical fiction and magic realism. I am looking forward to the next installment! ( )

Suspending progress... While I am THRILLED to have snagged an advance copy (thank you, Tonie!), it was veering a little too close to disturbingly dark for me, at this time. Can't wait to come back to it when I am a little more resilient with such tones.

I'm losing the will to live: another three star bloater. Practical Magic is one of my favourite films, but the books are romance novels with literary pretensions. The author rhapsodises on the meaning of love so often that she sounds like the Love Is ... cartoons by Kim Casali from the 1960s. Why have a prequel about a strong woman like Maria Owens, the female ancestor who escapes hanging when the rope breaks, and make her a blithering idiot who falls for the first charmer she meets? Why make her story about men at all? Maria is the daughter of a witch who is raised by another woman also skilled in the 'Nameless Art', and her daughter Faith is even more powerful, yet half of the overblown and repetitive story is wasted on wall art philosophy like 'love someone who will love you back'. The author's only saving grace is her historical research and wry take on the hypocritical 'Puritans' of New England and the men - of course - who labelled as witches and then murdered women for not following the rules. So much for the New World! ( )

Going into this my only experience with Alice Hoffman or the Owens family was the movie Practical Magic, and getting through this was difficult at times because it has a very different tone. This is very much a novel of historical fiction, and there are a lot of difficult situations (based on historical truths) that need to be grappled with. It wasn’t really “fun” to read, for the most part, but I’m glad I stuck with it. Also, it really made me want to get a pair of red boots. ( )

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.
