Reading :: The Rules of Magic
In the hope pf protecting her children Susanna sets rules: no walking in the moonlight, no red shoes, no wearing black, no cats, no crows, no candles, no books about magic. And most importantly never ever fall in love. Falling in love is leaving yourself vulnerable to loss and grief and the Owens believe they are cursed and all those who will come to love them will perish.
The book is about so much more than magic and fairy tale. It's a story of family, identity, love and loss. It's about accepting that to feel love is to take the risk of loosing those you love.
