This deeply atmospheric story about ancestral magic and deep secrets is a perfect choice for our October RHBC Spotlight Pick: Spells for Forgetting by Adrienne Young.

Emery Blackwood’s life changed forever the night her best friend was found dead, and the man she loved, August Salt, was accused of murder. The tragedy shook their tight-knit community to the core.

Now Emery is living quietly on the misty, remote shores of Saoirse Island, a place rooted in folklore and magic. Soon, strange things begin to happen. Emery senses that something is coming. Then August returns home for the first time in fourteen years, and unearths the past that the town has tried desperately to keep buried . . . deep betrayals spanning generations that bring shattering truths to light.

Readers will love delving into and talking about the rich characters, evocative setting, and dark mysteries in Spells for Forgetting. Join us on Thursday, October 27 at 7:30 p.m. ET at our Virtual Happy Hour to discuss these topics, and maybe cast a few spells of your own.
