Deep in the forests of Central Oregon is a town called Dark Root, a place shrouded in secrets and mystery. Founded over a century ago by Juliana Benbridge, a woman driven out of Portland for practicing witch craft, Dark Root claims to be the most magical place in the Pacific Northwest. The tradition of witchery is kept alive by Juliana's granddaughter, Sasha Shantay, a charismatic coven leader and the mother to four young daughters who have exhibited magical abilities themselves. But for twenty-year-old Maggie, Sasha's most powerful daughter, Dark Root is also a prison, a place where she is forced to spend her days working in her mother's Magick shop, forfeiting any dreams of her own. So when a mysterious stranger suddenly appears and offers to take her away from it all, she jumps at the chance. Now, seven years later, a strange phone call sends Maggie back to Dark Root and she is unprepared for what awaits her: a dying town, a sick mother, a renewed sibling rivalry, and a past she had hoped to forget. She also learns that if the Magick dies in Dark Root, the entire world will be in great peril. Part Practical Magic, part The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, The Witches of Dark Root is a tale that seamlessly weaves the normal with the mystical, the mundane with the fantastic, zipping in and out of time to Maggie's childhood as a young witchling, to current day where she must decide between once again running from a life she never wanted or saving the town she thought she hated.
