Hey Readers! So I am going to make this a quick one. I just arrived home from work and now its time to fill Devilled Eggs and pack up the truck for the Farm.
I am going to be honest here. I have been slacking in the reading department. I finished up a book and started a new book that I couldn’t wait to read. I am into it but then I am not. I think there is just way too much going on in my brain to sit down and enjoy the book. This weekend I will be heading out to the Farm for my Uncle Al’s big end of the Summer party. Sunday will be the day that I read and relax. I truly think that I need it!
My sister-n-law recommended a book to me that I have not read yet. I love the whole vampires and witches book so I am super excited to read this. However, I am going to read this around Halloween. Only fits..right?
Flirtation Friday pick- The Witches of Dark Root by April Aasheim
Deep in the forests of Oregon is a small town called Dark Root, a town steeped in magick, mystery, secrets, and witchcraft. But for Maggie Maddock, Dark Root is also a prison – a place where she is forced to work in her mother’s Magick Shoppe while the rest of the world moves forward without her. When a mysterious stranger offers to take Maggie away from it all, she leaves without looking back.
Seven years later, Maggie is called home. There she is confronted with a renewed sibling rivalry, a mother suffering a mysterious illness, and a town that’s lost it’s literal magick. Now Maggie must decide if she will use her newly discovered abilities to aid those she loves or run from her responsibilities once again.
In the tradition of Alice Hoffman’s Practical Magic and Rebecca Wells’ Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, The Witches of Dark Root seamlessly weaves the past with the present, the magickal with the mundane. It is a tale of family, forgiveness, and the healing power of love that will leave readers believing in magick long after the story ends.
