The witching hour : a novel

Rice, Anne

New York : Knopf ; New York : Distributed by Random House, 1990. First Edition. Fine cloth copy in an equally fine dust-wrapper. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. . Physical description; 965 pages ; 25 cm. Notes; First edition and stated first printing. Summary; From the author of the extraordinary Vampire Chronicles comes a huge, hypnotic novel of witchcraft and the occult through four centuries. Demonstrating, once again, her gift for spellbinding storytelling and the creation of legend, Anne Rice makes real for us a great dynasty of witches--a family given to poetry and to incest, to murder and to philosophy; a family that, over the ages, is itself haunted by a powerful, dangerous, and seductive being. On the veranda of a great New Orleans house, now faded, a mute and fragile woman sits rocking - and The Witching Hour begins. It begins in our time with a rescue at sea. Rowan Mayfair, a beautiful woman, a brilliant practitioner of neurosurgery--aware that she has special powers but unaware that she comes from an ancient line of witches--finds the drowned body of a man off the coast of California and brings him to life. He is Michael Curry, who was born in New Orleans and orphaned in childhood by fire on Christmas Eve, who pulled himself up from poverty, and who now, in his brief interval of death, has acquired a sensory power that mystifies and frightens him. As these two, fiercely drawn to each other, fall in love and--in passionate alliance--set out to solve the mystery of her past and his unwelcome gift, the novel moves backward and forward in time from today's New Orleans and San Francisco to long-ago Amsterdam and a cht´eau in the France of Louis XIV. An intricate tale of evil unfolds--an evil unleashed in seventeenth-century Scotland, where the first ""witch,"" Suzanne of the Mayfair, conjures up the spirit she names Lasher - a creation that spells her own destruction and torments each of her descendants in turn. From the coffee plantations of Port au Prince, where the great Mayfair fortune is made and the legacy of their dark power is almost destroyed, to Civil War New Orleans, as Julien--the clan's only male to be endowed with occult powers--provides for the dynasty its foothold in America, the dark, luminous story encompasses dramas of seduction and death, episodes of tenderness and healing. And always--through peril and escape, tension and release--there swirl around us the echoes of eternal war: innocence versus the corruption of the spirit, sanity against madness, life against death. With a dreamlike power, the novel draws us, through circuitous, twilight paths, to the present and Rowan's increasingly inspired and risky moves in the merciless game that binds her to her heritage. And in New Orleans, on Christmas Eve, this strangest of family sagas is brought to its startling climax. Subjects; Witches -- Fiction. New Orleans (La.) -- Fiction. Sorcellerie -- Louisiane -- La Nouvelle-Orléans -- Romans, nouvelles, etc. Genres; Fiction. Fantasy fiction. Romans, nouvelles, etc.

Rowan Mayfair is a brilliant and beautiful neurosurgeon with an extraordinary power to heal - or to harm.Sailing off the coast of California,she rescues a drowning man, Michael Curry,whose brush with death leaves him with strange sensory powers,and images which bewilder him. These two form a passionate alliance,as they set out to find the key to his unwelcome gift and to her mysterious past.We are taken on a journey which moves from contemporary New Orleans to 17thC Scotland,Amsterdam and France,where the Comtesse de Montcleve throws herself from the parapet of a cathedral to cheat the flames of the Inquisition. . . .and from the coffee plantations of Port au Prince,where the great Mayfair fortune is made,to Civil War New Orleans and the establishment of the American line. With a dreamlike power,the novel draws us along the circuitous,twilight paths taken by the Mayfair dynasty - to the present.And brooding over it all is the magical and bewitching city of New Orleans,the setting for the startling climax to Rowan and Michael's own dramatic story. 'The Witching Hour' is yet another magnificent new departure for Anne Rice and demonstrates once again her unique gift for storytelling.This extraordinary family saga brings to life women of power and enchantment - encompassing dramas of tenderness and cruelty,murder and incest,innocence and corruption,within a powerfully seductive love story.
