All three ladies aged and widowed, and Eastwick, the town, once full of temptations for young women, over the years turned into a boring place, where they live a wealthy family, protecting your morals "in the 50s". Only in the 2000s pubs turned into sports bars, and everyone is obsessed with electronics.Witches who have lost their magical abilities, I hope at least partly to restore their confidence, and at the same time to try to atone for the death of their rival Jenny Gabriel.According to Michiko, Kakutani, "widows of Eastwick" is written with the same elegiac tone, which appeared in Updike's novel "Rabbit at rest" (1990), which brought the writer a Pulitzer prize.
