review The Witches of New York Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB In the vein of Jonathan Strange Mr Norrell comes a new novel from historical fiction maven Ami McKay that transports readers to the heart of Victorian New York where three witches practice their craft to the delight of some but at their own perilRespectable Lady Seeks Dependable Shop Girl Those averse to magic need not apply New York in the spring of 1880 is a place alive with wonder and curiosity Determined to learn the truth about the world its residents enthusiastically engage in both scientific experimentation and spiritualist pursuits Séances are the entertainment. As a lover of all things witchy this book is totally up my alley I loved how McKay looks at women s histories in The Birth House and The Virgin Cure but I think this is my fave of her books Adelaide Eleanor and Beatrice are three independent women in a time and place 1880s NYC when it wasn t exactly easy to be an independent women They are brave vulnerable prickly resourceful stubborn and utterly charming I desperately wanted to visit their tea shop have my leaves and maybe my pal read and then leave with hibiscus tea McKay sprinkles a fast moving narrative with her vast wisdom of spell books herbal remedies and witchy traditions and superstitions News stories and moon phases add context to the story as well There is evil afoot in the form of a religious zealot rounding up women for the purposes of conversion and a scorned husband who wields his financial power as a tool for revenge but ultimately this is a story of women s power and there is a lot of playfulness in McKay s text Love love love I m off to watch Practical Magic for the zillionth time now
