much spoiler because this will ruin the essence of the book but I honestly say if you read the other two books of the series, this is amazing beginning to give enough information for you to understand the reasons behind most of the events andjuicy facts about family dynamics You got the most of the answers that you need And I advise you, after reading this prequel, you gotta read Practical Magic and The Rules of the Magic If you haven t read, this is a bliss so you gotta understand family s story chronologically and every piece of puzzle will makesense to you But if you already read it you got a brand new perspective and brighter,clear look to the characters evolving with your second time reading Overall It started slow but as you give not only your full concentration but also your whole heart and clear mind to this story, it enchants and mesmerizes you As a result you never want to put it down and after finishing it, you keep thinking about those remarkably memorable characters because they already became a part of you you may find pieces of yourself as you read their journeys I m giving well deserved, magical, witchery five stars So much thanks to NetGalley and SimonSchuster for sharing this fantastic ARC with me in exchange my honest review.bloginstagramfacebooktwitter 5 Magical StarsAlways Love Someone Who Loves You BackMaria Owens is a woman whose legend

will give will be returned to 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 addition to the series A huge thank you to NetGalley, Edelweiss, Simon Schuster and Alice Hoffman for the arc.Published on Goodreads on 5.3.20 Love all, trust a few, do wrong
