infant in a field, a foot of snow around her, the infant staring at a crows perched on her basket atop the junipers, the crow staring at this infant girl with pitch black hair and pale silvery gray eyes, wrapped in a blanket with her name stitched along the border And so Hannah brought the infant girl named Maria home to raise as her own, with the bird following, and Hannah singing.The crow stayed on, and was named Caden Caden, of course, knew he was supposed to be there, as he had recognized his destiny to be Maria s familiar It s there in the middle of these woods and fields where Maria learns about the nature around her, the difference between the things that grew there that could heal, and the things that could cause harm, with Hannah as her tutor as well as her mother In 1665, when Maria was two years old, deaths from the plague in London took the lives of sixty eight thousand, followed by the fire in London the following year, which took seventy thousand homes Hannah s gifts were sought after byandwomen, women who came to her searching for answers, seeking her out the cures that came from her garden, cures for the ache of those looking for love And while Hannah crafts her cures, Maria looks on and gains knowledge of the art of magic.This story mainly follows the life of Maria, a story that begins as an infant and follows her life as she learns cures and remedies and charms from Hannah And when Maria is ten, on Midsummer s night, Hannah s present to her is own Grimoire, a book made with love, and filled with power and knowledge The lessons begin in earnest there is much for Maria to learn.Maria will eventually travel to Cura ao, where she lives for a while, until she travels to Boston some years later in search of a man she met in Cura ao, and the story goes on from there Of course, included are the Salem Witch trials Of course, there s , much , to this story which I believe is her best of the Practical Magic series, perhaps because the writing seems a bitelevated in tone than I remember from Practical Magic A bitlike the writing I found in The Dovekeepers, although withof the lightheartedness that is occasionally found in both of the sequels to this second prequel to the book that started it all.If you ve read either Practical Magic or Rules of Magic then you already know about the Owens family, and the curse that has haunted the women in this family for centuries If you haven t read either of those books, Magic Lessons is where the story of the curse of the Owens women begins, so it isn t necessary to have read them but

you threefold For it is true you see as there are no take backs Chills ran down my spine, as I had no idea what Ms Hoffman had in store Shocked me, she did This will not terrify or scare you, that I can promise You will however, be wholly unprepared Magic Lessons is so different in comparison to both Practical Magic and The Rules of Magic, so dark and ominous, perhaps due to the time period in which it takes place, and the feel of it, as well as the writing style That being said, I truly enjoyed this novel and found it to be a brilliant prequel to both of the sequels I can only hope that Alice Hoffman keeps writingnovels in this series as I love reading about the Owens family For those of you who love reading about Magic and the Owen s family, you will not be disappointed by this
