Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman
The beloved classic novel, the basis of the classic film starring Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock. A perfect read for a cosy Christmas! As children, sisters Gillian and Sally were forever outsiders in their small New England town, teased, taunted and shunned for the air of magic that seems to sparkle in the air around them.
All Gillian and Sally ever wanted was to get away. And eventually they do – one marries, the other runs as far from home as she can manage. Years later, however, tragedy will bring the sisters back together. And they’ll find that no matter what else may happen, they’ll always have each other.
An enchanting tale of love, forgiveness and family, Practical Magic is beloved of readers of all ages.
