Garden Spells | Sarah Addison Allen
In a garden surrounded by a tall fence, tucked away behind a small, quiet house in an even smaller town, is an apple tree that is rumored to bear a very special sort of fruit. In this luminous debut novel, Sarah Addison Allen tells the story of that enchanted tree, and the extraordinary people who tend it. The Waverleys have always been a curious family, endowed with peculiar gifts that make them outsiders even in their hometown of Bascom, North Carolina. Even their garden has a reputation, famous for its feisty apple tree that bears prophetic fruit, and its edible flowers, imbued with special powers. Generations of Waverleys tended this garden. Their history was in the soil. But so were their futures. A successful caterer, Claire Waverley prepares dishes made with her mystical plantsfrom the nasturtiums that aid in keeping secrets and the pansies that make children thoughtful, to the snapdragons intended to discourage the attentions of her amorous neighbor. Meanwhile, her elderly cousin, Evanelle, is known for distributing unexpected gifts whose uses become uncannily clear. They are the last of the Waverleysexcept for Claires rebellious sister, Sydney, who fled Bascom the moment she could, abandoning Claire, as their own mother had years before. When Sydney suddenly returns home with a young daughter of her own, Claires quiet life is turned upside downalong with the protective boundary she has so carefully constructed around her heart. Together again in the house they grew up in, Sydney takes stock of all she left behind, as Claire struggles to heal the wounds of the past. And soon the sisters realize they must deal with their common legacyif they are ever to feel at home in Bascomor with each other. Enchanting and heartfelt, this captivating novel is sure to cast a spell with a style all its own.

2. Yes. I‘m a total cover snob. But I do give the ugly ones a chance if it sounds intriguing🧐
3. The tagged book is one of a few that‘s nature based. I really love earth magic stories🌿🌳🍂

Absolutely adored all the magical imagery, delicious flavors, relatable emotions & lingering smells that bubbled and erupted from Sarah Addison Allen‘s writing in Garden Spells. This was a perfectly enchanting mixture of adult fiction & magical realism with a dash of romance and I enjoyed every bit of it. The added theme of food/cooking might have won a few bonus points from me too🍎

A wonderful story celebrating home, sisterhood and family, love, commitment, resilience, magic, gardening, and legacy. I am overjoyed by Allen's novels and the empowerment she brings to my afternoons. I cannot wait to read more of her work! Which would you recommend? Novels at my library: 'Lost Lake,' 'Thr Firefly Dance,' 'The Sugar Queen,' 'The Girl who Chased the Moon,' and 'First Frost.'

wanderinglynn They are all good, so you really can‘t go wrong. But if I had to pick one, I‘d go with First Frost because it continues the Waverley family story. (edited) 1y
sleepy.ash87 Thanks, @wanderinglynn ! Happy to hear the Waverley family story continues. I'll definitely read 'First Frost' next! What other authors do you like who are similar to Allen? 1y
wanderinglynn I really haven‘t found any I particularly like. There are other magical realism realism authors, but I haven‘t found quite like Allen. She crafts such lovely stories. 1y

Nice light end of summer read about the Waverley family who have always possessed strange gifts. I enjoyed the relationship between sisters, Claire & Sydney who try to connect for the first time after Sydney chooses to return to her hometown to escape a dark part of her life. I liked quirky characters, esp. Evanelle and the apple tree. I wasn‘t as interested in the old frenemies like Emma. I‘m not going to read the sequel as it is 9 years later.

The Waverly women each have a special gift. Their backyard has a garden whose plants have magical side effects. Their yard also has a strange apple tree. Eating an apple from this tree will reveal to the eater the biggest event of their lives- good or bad.
The story was cute and it was a fast read. A perfect beach book.

Echhhhh this reading slump. So I think this was a victim of "just not right for me but probably really perfect for someone else." Pros: the writing, the apple tree concept. Cons: the unoriginal story, the Emma "plotline", the fact it was unchallenging and watered down
