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. Finally, she strikes out for the countryside on her own, selling her soul to an affable but rather simpleminded devil. 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.

This lovely story lingered on in my mind for weeks after I read it and I still feel thrilled by the memory of Lolly in the forest.

A beautifully written, wonderful book; the author assumes ones literacy. Imagine only 90 years ago, a woman author had to create a fantasy to propose that women were capable of their own choices.

An interesting tale, well written. But so embedded in its time I had a hard time getting in to it. I put it down after about 50 pages and didn't go back.
