I can’t believe I didn’t read this book ages ago I mean it was published in 1995. I loved the movie and crazy me didn’t make the connection until I read the Introduction by Hoffman. Well I loved the book too! I couldn’t put it down. It is a magical tale of love, family, the bond between two sisters and the how the human spirit will survive even through the most tragic of circumstances. I read The Rules of Magic a few weeks ago and can’t wait to read the other two in this series.
