Synopsis

In this delightful and witty novel, Laura Willowes rebels against pressure to be the perfect 'maiden aunt'. Not interested in men or the rushed life of London, Laura is forced to move there from her beloved countryside after the death of her father. Her relatives like dead things; they treasure stuffed animals and parade possible husbands ('suitable and likely undertakers', as Laura calls them) in front of Miss Willowes. Finally, Laura strikes out for the countryside on her own, selling her soul to an affable but rather simple-minded devil, and becomes a witch. First written in the 1920s, this book is timely and entertaining. It was the first selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club in 1926.
