We love it when the weather turns warmer. Our favorite read recommendation to take with you on Spring Break is a new tome written by Texas-based Amy Edwards. In The Trouble With Becoming a Witch, author, musician and multi-talented Edwards delivers a rocking literary debut, destined to become every woman’s guidebook on coming of courage just when you think it’s too late to change your life.
The skinny of the book? Veronica thinks she’s happy. She’s got a beautiful daughter and enjoys the picturesque suburban life everybody wants, right? But as the fights with her husband become more frequent and intense, she finds herself drawn to researching witchcraft late at night. When her husband discovers her new hobby, battle lines are drawn, and her marriage spirals downward.
Bristling with wit, compassion, and unflinching honesty, The Trouble With Becoming A Witch is far from being a “snap your fingers and change” kind of tale. It’s about what happens when a woman decides to stop living the life everyone has told her she is supposed to lead and starts living a life true to her desires. Seizing your own real life kind of magic isn’t easy and Veronica is forced to look deeply into who she wants to become. Is risking the security of life as she knows it worth becoming the witch and woman she knows she truly is?
The Trouble With Becoming A Witch will stick with all women, afraid to become themselves and fulfill
their own potential. Or, as Edwards puts it, “Take what life puts in front of you and run with it.”
