Review: Garden Spells By: Sarah Addison Allen

Garden SpellsGarden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the one that started it all and will make a reader fall in love with Ms. Allen - her writing, her stories, and simply the world that we fall into as we turn page one.
Bascom, North Carolina is a small town with legends of sorts, the Waverley family is the source if quite a few of them, their garden is definitely one of them. Claire Waverley embraced cooking from her garden, learning from her grandmother the messages the herbs and flowers could give. She even has understood the boundary between her and the town, what she doesn't understand is her attractive new neighbor and her sister sudden reappearance with a niece in tow after leaving ten years ago. Sydney Waverley brings with her a lot of wounds that Claire wasn't ready to deal with and some women in town still find her a threat. What Sydney has left behind to come back is even more dangerous than gossip or the apple tree out back and what she is hoping for can scare her even more - a happy life for her and her daughter.
Healing and magic, relationships and growth, all come into the picture. When you enter this book you will be spellbound and not want to leave. Wonderfully written and so enjoyable that you will want to revisit this world and feeling again and again.
