Alice Hoffman setzt Zauberhafte Schwestern fort

Category: News – Darkstar – 12:30

Practical Magic & Die Hexen von Eastwick (BluRay)… bzw. erzählt eine Vorgeschichte.

Practical Magic (dt. Im Hexenhaus) ist nicht nur Alice Hoffmans bis dato erfolgreichstes Buch. Es wurde auch unter dem Titel Zauberhafte Schwestern wunderschön von Hollywood mit Sandra Bullock und Nicole Kidman in den Hauptrollen verfilmt.

Mit ihrem nächsten Roman “The Rules of Magic” kehrt die US-Autorin zur Hexenfamilie der Owens zurück.

Allerdings spielt das neue Abenteuer vor ihrem Bestseller. Und im Mittelpunkt stehen nicht zwei Schwestern, sondern drei Geschwister.

Der Verlag über das Buch:

In this sparkling prequel we meet sisters Frances and Jet and Vincent, their brother.

From the beginning their mother Susanna knew they were unique: Franny with her skin as pale as milk and blood red hair, who could commune with birds; Jet as shy as she is beautiful, who knows what others are thinking, and Vincent so charismatic that he was built for trouble.

Susanna needed to set some rules of magic: no walking in the moonlight, no red shoes, no wearing black, no cats, no crows, no candles and certainly, absolutely, no books about magic

But when her children visit their Aunt Isabelle, in the small Massachusetts town where the Owens family has been blamed for everything that has ever gone wrong, they uncover family secrets and begin to understand the truth of who they are. Back in New York City each begins a risky journey as they try to escape the family curse.

The Owens children cannot escape love even if they try, just as they cannot escape the pains of the human heart. The two beautiful sisters will grow up to be the revered, and sometimes feared, aunts in Practical Magic, while Vincent, their beloved brother, will leave an unexpected legacy. Thrilling and exquisite, real and fantastical, The Rules of Magic is a story about the power of love reminding us that the only remedy for being human is to be true to yourself.

Ich bin schon mega-gespannt.

Auch wenn wir noch eine Weile warten müssen, bis wir das Buch in den Händen halten können.

Aber ich liebe Practical Magic und die Familie Owens!

Mochtet ihr den Film bzw. das Buch?
