TBR Thursday is hosted by She is too fond of books.
The Witches of Eastwick (Eastwick #1) by John Updike
Synopsis: Toward the end of the Vietnam era, in a snug little Rhode Island seacoast town, wonderful powers have descended upon Alexandra, Jane, and Sukie, bewitching divorcées with sudden access to all that is female, fecund, and mysterious. Alexandra, a sculptor, summons thunderstorms; Jane, a cellist, floats on the air; and Sukie, the local gossip columnist, turns milk into cream. Their happy little coven takes on new, malignant life when a dark and moneyed stranger, Darryl Van Horne, refurbishes the long-derelict Lenox mansion and invites them in to play. Thenceforth scandal flits through the darkening, crooked streets of Eastwick—and through the even darker fantasies of the town’s collective psyche.
Why it’s on my TBR:
I have wanted to read this book for years and was lucky enough to not only find a used copy of it for a good price, but I found the edition I wanted. I’m not sure why I like this cover so much, but I really do. I am hoping to get to this one sometime this month. I hope it’s good.
