Green Witch


What is loss?
The echo that surrounds the word gone.

What is love?
The deepest of your heart’s desires.

Green lives every day with feelings of loss. Her family is gone, the boy she loves is missing, and the world she once knew is transformed by tragedy. In order to rediscover the truth about love, hope, and magic, she must venture away from her home, collecting the stories of a group of women who have been branded as witches because of their mysterious powers. Only through their stories will Green find her heart’s desire.

Alice Hoffman’s readers asked for the character of Green to return. Written after the events of 9/11 Green Angel began this story of renewal. Now Green Witch takes us farther into the achingly beautiful, ruined and redeemed world.

For the many readers who cherished Green Angel, Alice Hoffman’s miraculous story of a world destroyed and reborn, this new novel marks the return of an extraordinary character – one whose story was not complete in a single book. For new readers, it presents a beautiful exploration of how we must confront what we fear most, and how we can find love that is everlasting.
