5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious, 11 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lolly Willowes (VMC Book 239) (Kindle Edition)
This is the most beautifully written, lyrical, eerie, delicious tale of witchcraft in rural England - I cannot recommend it enough. The story concerns Laura Willowes ("Aunt Lolly") the maiden aunt of the family, confirmed spinster, who upon the death of her beloved father is exiled out to live with relatives and pretty much ends up being the "useful" aunt upon whom everyone comes to rely. An appendage in the family, Lolly is taken for granted by all, until she decides to do something for herself and moves to the charming village of Great Mop. There she meets a whole coven of witches, a kitten called Vinegar and Satan; and life starts to pick up for her.

There is not a word out of place in the novel and reading it is quite simply a bewitching experience (if you'll pardon the pun). In fact, by the end I was longing to move to Great Mop myself, visit the fantastically named pub "The Reason Why" (every village should have one) and perhaps take up witchcraft. I also found a lovely quote from the book: "Life becomes simple if one does nothing about it." How true.
