I love this book. It’s one of the author’s more serious books, with life and death consequences, but still keeps her typical sweet romance at the same time.
Read the story now
Veda is a witch who spends most of her time looking after her cousins’ futures and expecting to live out the rest of her days as a spinster while avoiding her super duper creepy pervert cousin Antony (whom I will hate eternally forever). Then Salinger comes along and slowly convinces Veda she is someone worth loving.
I have read this book probably 3 or 4 times, and the hospital scene chokes me up every time. I don’t know what it is about it…the fact that she doesn’t want to live anymore, or maybe that there’s someone who goes to such efforts because they want her to live so badly, or maybe because it’s always late at night that I get to that part and I’m tired. I don’t know. It’s great.
