Summary of Spellcast Summary of Spellcast Reviews for Spellcast An Excerpt from Spellcast
When Maggie Graham lost her job and her apartment fell to pieces, she decided to flee New York City for a while and hide in Vermont, at the Crossroads Theatre. She hadn't planned to audition, yet soon found herself part of the summer stock cast. But her previous acting experiences couldn't prepare her for the theater's unusual staff-and its handsome, almost otherworldly director."There's a vast but little known overlap between fans of fantasy and fans of musical theater, and Barbara Ashford hits the sweet spot on both with Spellcast. It's warm, humorous, emotional, heartfelt, and full of magic. Curse you, Barbara, for making me cry! And for getting 'Some Enchanted Evening' stuck in my head all week."
-Carrie Vaughn, New York Times bestselling author of the Kitty Norville series
"[A] novel about the transformative power of the theater...a woman with an unsettled past...and the intersecting coincidences that move her toward the future. Maggie is relatable and her journey compelling. Four stars."
-RT Book Reviews
"[A] charming fantasy novel. Maggie Graham is enchanted and bemused by the Crossroads Theatre...but it takes Maggie a while to really grasp just how magical it is. Readers will figure it out much sooner, but there's enough mystery (not to mention romance) to keep readers interested.... A slightly bittersweet but appropriate conclusion left me wanting more, in fine theatrical tradition."
