I finished this book in one day and found it very difficult to put it down. I loved learning the back story of Maria, her family, and the curse.
This is a prequel that rounds out the entire series. This is the story of Maria, how she came to have the name of Owens, and the love that taught her magic. Maria learns that even a witch with years of training can misunderstand visions and not magic can keep people from finding love if it's true.
The book takes you through Maria's life and how she learns to deal with her magic, true heartbreak, and true love. It leads perfectly into what we have already read in Practical Magic and The Rules of Magic and it was a pleasure to read how this amazing magical family started and the strength they get their magic from.
