Green Angel (see my review here) is a short book full of prose and pain and self-discovery and I was looking forward to the sequel as soon as I finished it. Green Witch was not a disappointment.

Green Witch starts were the first book ended and it has to do with renewal, hope and the faith that something better will come. It explains better the tragedy that happened in the first book (I was never quite clear on what happened, only that it involved a fire) and it made better sense to me now. Green is such a lovely character. She is honest to a fault and thought to be a witch by the villagers, just because she is different.

In this book we get to visit some of the same characters and we get introduced to others. The “enchanted” or “witches” are women with a tales of tragedy that changed their lives in a permanent way. They learned to cope with their loss and pain the only way they knew how. Green tells their story. She becomes a writer and a scribe for everyone that has a story to tell, I loved that she was able to provide some closure to these people that were forever changed by loss.
I also enjoyed that we get to see Diamond and that the story had a happy ending. The writing is flawless, lyrical, whimsical, and full of feeling. I loved both books.

About the cover – The Green Witch is beautiful in the inside as well as the outside.

It still amazes me beyond belief how Alice Hoffman can craft such a perfect novel in little over a hundred pages. GREEN WITCH is haunting, beautiful, and enchanting. To be honest, I had my doubts when starting this book, similar to the doubts I had when I started to read GREEN ANGEL. I questioned the book's ability to properly execute a plot and develop its characters. But after the first few pages, I was hooked and I knew that I was going to love it.

Hoffman's writing is simply beautiful. Despite the ugly landscape that Green's world has been transformed into, Hoffman is able to make it pretty through her use of vivid descriptions and imagery. The story was captivating and all the characters that Green meets along the way are interesting and full of life. The book gives you an appreciation for nature's beauty and fills you up with hope and determination.

GREEN WITCH is a light and quick read. Fans of GREEN ANGEL will not be disappointed, and for those new to the series, I strongly recommend that you pick up the first book!
