Description

For the Owens family, love is a curse that began in 1620, when Maria Owens was charged with witchery for loving the wrong man.

Hundreds of years later, in New York City at the cusp of the sixties, when the whole world is about to change, Susanna Owens knows that her three children are dangerously unique. Difficult Franny, with skin as pale as milk and blood red hair, shy and beautiful Jet, who can read other people’s thoughts, and charismatic Vincent, who began looking for trouble on the day he could walk.

From 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, they uncover family secrets and begin to understand the truth of who they are. Back in New York City each begins a risky journey as they try to escape the family curse.

The Owens children cannot escape love even if they try, just as they cannot escape the pains of the human heart. The two beautiful sisters will grow up to be the revered, and sometimes feared, aunts in Practical Magic, while Vincent, their beloved brother, will leave an unexpected legacy.

    Rules of magic is about three Owens siblings and their coming of age. The Owens family is a family of witches who are cursed. Any one they fall in love with will end up dead. How will this curse define the life of Franny, Jet and Vincent forms the rest of the story.
    This is a magical book that is filled with beautiful imagery, wonderful characters who will leave a permanent impression on you and a heartwarming story of growing up, finding love and realising the everyday magic of life. It made me laugh and cry and made me want to just burrow inside the pages of this book and never leave. If you were a fan of the book Practical Magic or the movie, I would definitely recommend you check this prequel out. Even if you are not a fan of either, this is still a book that will definitely touch your heart.
