OMG, I totally loved this book. This was the long-awaited prequel to her bestseller Practical Magic, which I had read 20 years ago. Set in the Sixties, it follows the lives of Owens sisters, Franny and Jet, and their brother Vincent. Through the decade they each experience love, heartache and loss due to a family curse. The characters were so vividly written, I did not want to put the book down for a minute!! I have a feeling that a re-read of Practical Magic will be in order for me soon!! Highly recommended!!
