Summary
Although two orphaned sisters try to escape a somewhat unusual upbringing by their witch-like spinster aunts, they cannot escape their supernatural and quirky influence in this magical tale.
Critique
Humorous. Likeable characters. Good dialogue. Clever in its use of old wives tales or sayings. A captivating read! Hoffman's lyrical prose style, a hefty dose of magic and the supernatual, plus totally charming characters make PRACTICAL MAGIC one of her best books ever.
