A book writen by Alice Hoffman, which has now also been made into a movie. I have not seen the movie, but I've just finished the book.

It follows a family of witches through three generations, telling about their love lives. There is more sex (referred to as love) than there is magic. There is also a bit of a problem with restless townsfolk and a dead man in the garden, and there is a decent amount of spell-casting. Primarily a 'happy' book. You know what I mean.

Not a bad book, but not a great one either. It looks like it's just going to be the general outline of the Owens' families lives untill about page 150. Then the heart of the plot comes to light.

The movie, I hear, has a somewhat different storyline than the book.

Update: The movie is completely different. I still haven't seen it, but I've gotten a chance to compare plots, and different they are. Completely different.
