You step into a magical place when you open up Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen. The Waverly women have always been well known in their small town of Bascom, N.C. for their strange ways. Everyone knows there’s something mysterious about the apple tree in their back yard. Claire Waverly is often hired to cater local gatherings because her food can alter the mood of the party. Aunt Evanelle goes around town giving things to people – a lighter, a shirt, gum – that they find they need soon after. The whole town is stirred up when Sydney returns with a young daughter after ten years of wandering without any word of her whereabouts.
This is a delightful story of magic, romance, and dreams come true.
