The Witching Hourby Anne Rice
One of my favorite novels. Rice’s historical knowledge and New Orleans childhood really make this book not only authentic, but really informative as well. The Mayfair family is so well-constructed and fascinating, you won’t want to put it down. This book is like a piece of cake…sink your teeth in and enjoy!Amazon Reviewer
