The Book of Magic by Alice Hoffman 378 pages

This is the third and final book in Alice Hoffman’s magic series. It follows three generations of Owens’ women, all of whom are witches. The family has been cursed for 300 years, and it involves a tragedy occurring to any family member who falls in love. When this happens to Kylie Owens, the youngest in the family, she vows to reverse the curse even if it costs her her life.

I usually enjoy Alice Hoffman, but The Book of Magic has too much magic and too little character and plot development. There are six main female characters and three secondary male characters, and none of them were fleshed out-perhaps because there were just too many of them.
