Magic Lessons by Alice Hoffman Book Summary

In this “ bewitching” (The New York Times Book Review) novel that traces a centuries-old curse to its source, beloved author Alice Hoffman unveils the story of Maria Owens, accused of witchcraft in Salem, and matriarch of a line of the amazing Owens women and men featured in Practical Magic and The Rules of Magic.

Where does the story of the Owens bloodline begin? With Maria Owens, in the 1600s, when she’s abandoned in a snowy field in rural England as a baby. Under the care of Hannah Owens, Maria learns about the “Nameless Arts.” Hannah recognizes that Maria has a gift and she teaches the girl all she knows. It is here that she learns her first important lesson: Always love someone who will love you back.

When Maria is abandoned by the man who has declared his love for her, she follows him to Salem, Massachusetts. Here she invokes the curse that will haunt her family. And it’s here that she learns the rules of magic and the lesson that she will carry with her for the rest of her life. Love is the only thing that matters.

Magic Lessons is a “heartbreaking and heart-healing” (BookPage) celebration of life and love and a showcase of Alice Hoffman’s masterful storytelling.

A Solid Prequel and Origin Story. Hoffman gave a lovely gift to her fans with this one in the story of Maria Owens, the start of her bloodline, her romantic missteps and of course, the curse. Her subsequent books fit better with the movie than the original book, Practical Magic so if you saw the movie then read the book, but preferred the movie (as many seem to), you will find this an enjoyable read. Despite being a fan, I must say that Hoffman’s writing style is admittedly a little strange: at times it is brilliantly descriptive, at other times a bit rushed and matter-of-fact. Nonetheless, it’s a beautiful book all-said, blending the genres of fantasy, romance and historical fiction.

Amazing. And enchanting.

Looooooved!. Such a fun and beautiful story. For any one that likes Practical Magic this book is a must read.

Favorite. One of my favorite stories of all time. Highly recommend. The author’s writing is enchanting and magical. If you enjoy women empowerment, love, and witchcraft, this book is for you! 🖤

This is my favorite one!. I think this one is my favorite! Such details and descriptions! You fall under a spell while reading this book! What a well put together story of love, magic, and mother’s and daughters! I love the world of the Owen’s women!! And I can’t wait to read more!!!

Captivating. There wasn’t a thing I didn’t like about this book. It was wonderful reading.

Could hardly wait. This was the most depressing book. I could hardly wait until this book was over. They gave you a bit of the other book.I read it thinking it would be better,but no.

Magic Lessons. I loved this book. I have loved all the books about the Owens women and crave more. I read Practical Magic when it first came out. Read the prequel again as soon as it premiered. And now Magic Lessons. I want more. Alice Hoffman is a joy to read. Her gift as a story teller is something I envy, but hope she’ll continue with whatever thrills her. I just want to tell her again I want more on the Owens women. Thank you Ms. Hoffman for the hours of pleasure you have given me.

Full of Wisdom and Magic. I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley. All opinions are my own. Magic Lessons by Alice Hoffman is a prequel to her books Practical Magic and Rules of Magic. This book is the story of the matriarch of the family, Maria Owens. If you’ve read the first two books, she would be the one that uttered the curse that has plagued the Owens women through the generations. “To any man who ever loves an Owens, let this curse befall you, let your fate lead to disaster, let you be broken in body and soul, and may it be that you never recover.” When Maria was born in 1664 her mother abandoned her in a field and she was taken in by Hannah Owens who practiced the Unnamed Arts and when she realized that Maria had a gift for the Arts she taught her everything she knew. This is a time when witches were blamed for things that went wrong and many women were murdered after being accused of witchcraft. The book follows Maria’s life from Essex England, to Curacao as an indentured servant where her daughter Faith is born, to Salem, Massachusetts, to New York City and then back to Salem. As a huge fan of both Practical Magic and Rules of Magic I found this story to be delightful and full of wisdom and magic. I highly recommend reading all three stories.
