Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen
I really enjoyed this slightly witch-y book. I would describe the story as ‘The Language of Flowers’ meets ‘Practical Magic’.
The Premise: At the heart of this story is the Waverley family. Claire still lives in the family home, tending the garden and using the flowers from the garden to create unique and purposeful dishes she serves as part of her catering business. Claire’s estranged sister Sydney had recently fled an abusive relationship and returned home to start over. There is also a peculiar older cousin that is known around town for her unusual gifts.
This is a cute, feel good story. It’s a story of family, of love and of small town drama. I, for one, feel very inspired to go spend some time in the garden.
