They say a witch lives in the old house under the bridge. Always in the shadows, draped in ivy and sorrow... Some people think it’s only a silly tale to scare children, but it’s true. Every word.
Josephine Hemlock knows that the rumors of a witch living in Willow’s End, Nebraska, are true — after all, she’s the witch in question. Jo has always managed to keep her magical life separate from her normal one. But now the mysterious Curse that killed her mother — and so many Hemlock witches before her — has returned. Soon Jo realizes that the life she’s fought to keep hidden could destroy the one she’s worked so hard to protect.
Like Kiersten White’s Paranormalcy and TV’s Charmed, House of Ivy & Sorrow is a fun, commercial blend of realistic romance and humor with a paranormal touch — but this mesmerizing (and occasionally bone-chilling) brand of magic is completely one-of-a-kind.
Natalie Whipple loves testing new concoctions in the kitchen, and sometimes pretends she’s actually mixing potions instead. Her food has yet to curse anyone, which she supposes is a good thing. Natalie lives in Utah with her three kids and husband. She is also the author of Transparent. Visit her online at www.nataliewhipple.com and follow her on Twitter @nataliewhipple.
