Editorial Reviews

Review

"Storytelling is in Hoffman’s bones, and the skill with which she dispenses information and compresses time, so that a year passes in a sentence, so that a tragedy witnessed becomes the propeller for a hundred-page subplot, is (forgive me) bewitching. My current reality feels chaotic and confusing; to have a narrator take my hand and tell me that linden root and yarrow will cure a racing heart, that witches turn silver dull with their touch, is an undiluted pleasure... Hoffman’s book swept me away during a time I most needed it." New York Times Book Review

"Hoffman writes deftly, and often beautifully, about nature, and she can plot like, well, a witch, casting a spell on her reader to flip pages, reading ahead for plot twists... Magic Lessons is a compelling reminder of the past, which as it turns out, is not distant enough from the present.”Boston Globe

"A gorgeous new novel you won't want to miss"Bustle

"Vivid and enchanting, with a can’t-miss-it foray into the Salem Witch Trials, Magic Lessons is another sublime entry in an arresting series."Esquire

“In Hoffman’s luminous prose, all characters, even the villains, are not only vividly, but also compassionately, rendered... Hoffman adeptly highlights that how one uses a talent, selflessly or selfishly, has a sweeping impact on many lives, meaning that one should always choose courage, and that love is the only answer.”Booklist

"Hoffman offers an eye-opening account of how single women were treated in the 17th century, particularly when their knowledge or intelligence was deemed threatening. [This] page-turning adventure is thoroughly enjoyable. Hoffman’s redemptive story of a fiercely independent woman adds an engrossing, worthwhile chapter to the series."Publisher's Weekly

"Calling all Alice Hoffman stans. Along the way, [Magic Lessons] shows us how smart, independent women were treated in the 17th century. Don't miss it." —theSkimm

"Full of wonderfully strong women, fascinating history and a plot that doesn't stop spinning, this book is a treat."AARP Magazine

"Mysterious, magical and with important lessons about love and life, I cannot wait for it!”Parade

"Heartbreaking and heart-healing…intense and gorgeous…This is an impressive tale, equal parts love story, history, and horror….The whole thing is absolutely riveting and riveting from start to finish.”BookPage

"A very emotional, mystical, engaging read. The characters in this novel are brilliantly drawn with Hoffman’s skillful writing... It is a magical read." The Free Lance–Star

5.0 out of 5 stars It’s everything I was waiting for
By Bonnie Ford on October 12, 2020
Moving, magical, heartbreaking, beautiful, everything I would expect from an Alice Hoffman novel. I have read Rules of Magic, and Practical Magic as well, and I am just so happy this exists. Magic Lessons is the reason for all of it. The curse, the witches, the home, all of the best and worst. My favorite part of all three novels is the last page. I love the last lines the most, they always stick with me. And I always plant lavender for luck.

Even if you haven’t read Practical Magic or The Rules of Magic, this is well worth a read. A loved the character’s perspective on the awful witch trials. Always wanted to know more about Maria Owens!
