Three best friends mix magic – they whisper secrets of the soul.
And the things that make them different, when together, make them whole.   

A story of three girls who are different in many ways, but are united by the special bond of friendship. The unique power of female friendship is celebrated as we watch these friends support and uplift each other as they move through life – from children playing at casting spells and making potions to young women coming together to talk and laugh under the stars.


"A coven of three witches demonstrates that the magic of friendship can last a lifetime in this heartwarming tale" — Foreword Reviews
