The Wizardry Of Jewish Women by Gillian Polack
Pink tutus, magic, sarcasm, amulets and bushfires: this is suburban fantasy in Australia.
Life is never quite what it seems, even without the lost family heritage delivered to Judith and Belinda. Judith wants an ordinary life… mostly. If Belinda weren’t Judith’s sister, and if it wasn’t for bushfires and bigots, Belinda’s life would be perfectly ordinary. Judith will tell you so; you don’t even have to ask.
Belinda’s friend Rhonda has a superpower. Each time she sees the future or reveals deep secrets, seekers for the ‘New Nostradamus’ come closer to destroying her life. Her hold on normalcy is very fragile; so is her hold on safety.
Judith and Rhonda are haunted, Judith by her past and Rhonda by her gift. Will they ever come into the sunshine and find happiness?
