"Two magicians restore magic to England in the early 1800s after a lapse of 3 or 4 centuries. Strange saves his wife and 3 others enchanted by a fairie called up by Norrell to save a life. This is a cross between historical fiction and fantasy. Or Harry Potter for grownups. Not thrilling, but I was a little sad to see it end."
