Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen
The beautiful cover of this book first caught my eye but the story inside was charming and imaginative. Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen is a lovely story about family ties and the magic of everyday life. This book is a perfect example of the magical realism genre. My first experience with this type of story telling was Laura Esquivel's Like Water for Chocolate (which I totally loved). If you like quirky stories with a touch of fantasy, you will definitely like Garden Spells.
