I was finally able to get my hands on a copy of Alice Hoffman’s Green Witch, and it was even more wonderful than Green Angel. Green Witch picks up about a year after the end of Green Angel, with Green busily writing down all of the townspeople’s life stories. Green decides that she wants to write the stories of the five women who are thought to be witches, and maybe get clues to where a missing friend might be located. During her quest, Green learns of the heartache that others felt after the explosion, and the way people coped with the tragedy. Hoffman, again, perfectly captures the many forms that grief can take, as well as the strength to carry on. What I love about the Green series, is that the characters always find hope and strength with the people around them. Both stories are very inspiring, and I finished each book with an uplifted spirit.
Be sure to check out our review on Green Angel as well (see April 25th).
