“Incantation” by Alice Hoffman, Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, October 1 2007

Estrella is a Marrano: During the time of the Spanish Inquisition, she is one of a community of  Spanish Jews living double lives as Catholics. And she is living in a house of secrets, raised by a family who practices underground the ancient and mysterious way of wisdom known as Kabbalah. When Estrella discovers her family’s true identity–and her family’s secrets are made public – she confronts a world she’s never imagined, where new love burns and where friendship ends in flame and ash, where trust is all but vanquished and betrayal has tragic and bitter consequences.

Infused with the rich context of history and faith, in her most profoundly moving work to date, Alice Hoffman‘s first historical novel is a transcendent journey of discovery and loss, rebirth and remembrance.

Alice Hoffman (born March 16, 1952) is an American novelist and young-adult and children’s writer, best known for her 1996 novel Practical Magic, which was adapted for a 1998 film of the same name. Many of her works fall into the genre of magic realism and contain elements of magic, irony, and non-standard romances and relationships.
