The continuing story of wandering witch Matilda (Matt) Black and Edmund Reynolds, a young man with magic of his own, finds the pair in the town where Edmund grew up-and the benevolently haunted house that was a refuge for Edmund and his friends when they were children. But the house begins to speak to Matt, telling her that she and Edmund must seek out his long-scattered friends. As they search, they find that some have grown up to be ordinary, untouched by any hint of magic. Others, though, have been transformed in ways that defy imagination.
Now, they must all come together again. For a darkness is rising, a dangerous, powerful entity. And the only chance of stopping it lies in the hearts of the lost children of the house...

Algis Budrys said it best: "Most writers show and tell. Nina Hoffman sings." Past the Size of Dreaming is the wonderfully inventive continuation of A Red Heart of Memories. Readers rejoin the wandering witches Matt (Matilda) Black and Edmund Reynolds as they revisit and heal the painful past. For those who've not yet read the first book, Hoffman reintroduces them with "Matt Black smiled. She had found Edmund three months earlier in a pioneer graveyard, and she had stayed with him ever since." Matt "spent most of her time talking with things instead of people" because "anything shaped by humankind might have a story to tell her." Edmund and Matt have found two of Edmund's childhood friends, Nathan the ghost and Suki (Susan), the girl Edmund rescued from an abusive father. They seek the others, Julio, Deirdre, and the twins, Terry and Tasha. To defeat the demon-controlling master wizard who once abducted Julio and is still controlling Galen, his apprentice, they must pool their magical resources. --Nona VeroAbout the Author:
