THE STUNNING, UNFORGETTABLE CONCLUSION TO THE BELOVED PRACTICAL MAGIC SERIES

For centuries, the Owens family has been cursed in matters of love. When beloved aunt Jet Owens hears the sound of the deathwatch beetle, she knows that it is a signal. She has finally discovered the secret to breaking the curse, but time is running out. She has only seven days to live.

Unaware of the familynsquo;s witchcraft lineage and all it entails, one of the young sisters of the new Owens generation has fallen in love. As the curse strikes once again, her love squo;s fate hangs in the balance, spurring three generations of Owens to venture back to where it all began and use their gifts to break the spell that has marked all their lives.

But doing so threatens to destroy everything the family has fought so hard to protect. How much will they give up for the greatest gift of all?

PRAISE for ALICE HOFFMAN

ssquo;Beautiful, harrowing, a major contribution to twenty-first century literaturetsquo;
Toni Morrison

isquo;I am still reeling from The Dovekeepers tdash; from the history Alice Hoffman illuminates, from the language she uses to bring these women to life. This novel is a testament to the human spirit and to love rising from the ashes of war. But most of all, this novel is one that will never be forgotten by a reader.tsquo;
Jodi Picoult

asquo;In her remarkable new novel, Alice Hoffman holds a mirror to our ancient past as she explores the contemporary themes of sexual desire, womentsquo;s solidarity in the face of strife, and the magic thatcsquo;s quietly present in our day-to-day living. Put The Dovekeepers at the pinnacle of Hoffmanasquo;s extraordinary body of work. I was blown away.?squo;
Wally Lamb

?squo;Alice Hoffman takes seemingly ordinary lives and lets us see and feel extraordinary things.?squo;
Amy Tan

?squo;Miss Hoffman heals wounds with the gentle touch of an angel?squo;
Joseph Heller

'Oh, what a book this is! Hoffman?squo;s exploration of the world of good and evil, and the constant contest between them, is unflinching; and the humanity she brings to us ?dash; it is a glorious experience.'
Elizabeth Strout
