The Rules of Magic

Ts and charismatic Vincent who began looking for trouble on the day he could walkFrom the start Susanna sets down rules for her children No walking in the moonlight no red shoes no wearing black no cats no crows no candles no books about magic And most importantly never ever fall in love But when her children visit their Aunt Isabelle in the small Massachusetts town where the Owens family has been blamed for everything that has ever gone wrong The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman is a 2017 is a Simon Schuster publication Those eccentric aunts from Practical Magic Just what is their backstory anyway I was so excited when I heard this book was going to be a preuel to Practical Magic Finally we learn the history behind the infamous curse that plagues the Owens women and discover the legacy behind the love potions and herbs and the complicated emotions swirling around Frances and Jet I usually try to reserve my enthusiasm when a seuel or preuel is released for a popular book or movie especially with such a lengthy time gap in between but when one stellar review after another began pouring in for this book I threw caution to the wind and allowed myself some giddiness Still I was surprised by exactly how much I enjoyed this book I don t read much magic realism these days so from that perspective this was a nice departure from the psych thrillers and nonfiction that has somehow begun to dominate my TBR pile recently But it was than just that I think I enjoyed the era the story was set in and the historical details surrounding the family drama Of course the one word that is impossible to escape while reading this book is that it is magical and it truly is The dark family saga the events that lead us to Gillian and Sally s story and explains the personalities of the Franny and Jet makes so much sense now Is it possible to uell natural magical skills Is it possible for magic to work without doing harm Can you really fight loveThis is also a coming of age story filled with angst nobleness honor triumphs and tragedy But and this is going to really upset some people because they wouldn t be caught dead reading a love story But true love is at the center of the book its very life force and is at the very heart of everything that transpires So those who view romance novels with high disdain guess what If you read this book and loved it you just read a romantic love story and not just that but an EPIC love story with all its conflicts all its angst all its heartbreak its tenderness anger and frustration You loved all the darkness magic and all the power but love is the most potent and powerful magic of all HA Before reading this book I felt I should touch base with PM take a uick refresher course if you will to try and purge the movie version from my mind just a little I m glad I did that because this book s familiarity was like touching base with characters I had grown to care for However at times the tone was so different I sometimes felt the author had taken liberties with her own book as strange as that may seem but it wasn t necessarily a bad thing Of course the images from the movie version could have been playing havoc with my impressions as well But sometimes I wondered Are these the same aunts I read about in PM Either way this book will completely turn everything you thought you knew on its ear while casting a spell of enchantment over you completely sucking you into the Owens family saga leaving you bewitched and absolutely spellbound So remember Fall in love whenever you can and Know that the only remedy for love is to love 45 stars
