Practical Magic: The Beloved Novel of Love, Friendship, Sisterhood and Magic - The Practical Magic Series 3 (Paperback)Alice Hoffman (author)
A beloved precursor to the 'witch lit' genre and the inspiration for a major Hollywood movie, Hoffman's lightly gothic saga brings two magical sisters back together after many years in a resounding tribute to family, friendship and the enduring power of love.
The beloved classic novel, the basis of the classic film starring Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock
As children, sisters Gillian and Sally were forever outsiders in their small New England town, teased, taunted and shunned for the air of magic that seems to sparkle in the air around them.
All Gillian and Sally ever wanted was to get away. And eventually they do - one marries, the other runs as far from home as she can manage.
Years later, however, tragedy will bring the sisters back together. And they'll find that no matter what else may happen, they'll always have each other. An enchanting tale of love, forgiveness and family, Practical Magic is beloved of readers of all ages.
