Wayne Hicksabout this book: April is a single mom, trying to raise her two young teens on the farm she inherited when her parents died in a tragic accident. Abandoned by their father, she's doing the best she can, but often feels like the weight of the world is going to crush her completely. All of that changes one day, though, when her big, lovable dog drags home a box that was lost by a wrecked delivery truck. The labels are gone, and not knowing where it came from, she opens it to find an old, brass lamp, and sets it on ehr kitchen counter before going out to do her daily chores.
But then something magical happens, when three 17th century witches (Emma, 64 and stern; Mary, a natural-born blonde Cougar; and Annalee, their 15 year old apprentice) appear in her kitchen, astounded by all the many different kinds of "magic" they see! They had been condemned to die in a burning cottage, but Emma, the eldest of them, had used an ancient "skipping spell" to escape, and bound it to the lamp she was sure would be found after the fire. When it saw the sun again, they wold reappear... but fate stepped in, and it did not see the sun for over three hundred years!
When April discovers them in her house, a hilarious confrontation ensues, but by the time it's over she not only believes their story--she decides to adopt the witches as her poor relations from "the old country", and most of the local community comes to love them.
But then a deadly crisis comes to town, and it's up to the Very Swift Witches to save the day... and, quite possibly, the world!
Many of my readers have called this book "one of the most delightful romantic fantasies ever!" It has caused tears from laughter and depth of emotion, and left many readers begging for more, and so I am planning at least two more books about these charming and wonder-filled characters.
