A great deleted scene from Garden Spells
Sarah Addison Allen has a lovely website for her novel Garden Spells (appearing in the current edition of Select Editions). On her website, Sarah tells readers, "Garden Spells didn't start out as a magical novel. It was supposed to be a simple story about two sisters reconnecting after many years. But then the apple tree started throwing apples and the story took on a life of its own... and my life hasn't been the same since."
Also on Sarah's website you can read the book's original prologue which she later deleted (click on "Deleted Scenes.") The prologue's too long to print here but we encourage you to read it since it's full of background info about those magical Waverley women. It's also full of spoilers so don't read it until after you've read the book.
