    Before they were the widows of Eastwick, our heroines were a trio of delightfully wicked witches. In a small New England town in that hectic era when the sixties turned into the seventies, there lived three witches. Alexandra Spoffard, a sculptress, could create thunderstorms. Jane Smart, a cellist, could fly. The local gossip columnist, Sukie Rougemont, could turn milk into cream. Divorced but hardly celibate, the wonderful witches one day found themselves quite under the spell of the new man in town.

    Overall

    The novel is beautifully written with prose and imagery that, to me, provides new ways of looking at nature and fertility. Yet, the story is so languid and dry that it takes forever to get anywhere. This novel is brilliantly written, but I really enjoyed the movie more, although they are really two completely different things.
