About the Author
Menna van Praag was born in Cambridge, England, and studied modern history at Oxford University. Her first work of fiction, Men, Money, and Chocolate—an autobiographical tale about a waitress who aspires to be a writer—has been translated into twenty-six languages. Her first novel, The House at the End of Hope Street, was inspired by an idea van Praag had to set up a house for female artists to give them a year to fulfill their artistic ambitions. She is also the author of The Dress Shop of Dreams.

Top Customer Reviews
The Witches of Cambridge was a charming novel. I just sat down and read it straight through (I was not pleasant when interrupted). The only thing that bothered me were the abrupt transitions between scenes (not chapters). It led to some confusion at first when one minute you are with Kat and then the next sentence Noa. Otherwise, I was riveted to the pages of this book. I give The Witches of Cambridge 5 out of 5 stars. I love Menna Van Praag’s writing style (I have read all of her books). It is so easy to read and entrancing! I cannot wait for Menna Van Praag’s next novel.
I received a complimentary copy of The Witches of Cambridge in exchange for an honest review.
“Witches?!” you may be thinking. Yes, but not the ones you may be imagining (with broomsticks, etc). The characters are regular people like you and me whose thoughts and actions are woven with an underlying magic that feels so real and natural in the very compelling world of this story that it makes one wonder if that magic actually exists in real life.
The characters in this book stayed with me even when I wasn't reading it. I thought about them and wondered what would happen to them. While reading the book, I experienced a sheer sense of pleasure and delight in getting to know them and watching their lives unfold.
With gloriously vivid descriptions, surprising twists and turns of the stories and beautifully real, honest & relatable glimpses into the characters' innermost thoughts, this book is a gem.
The relationships! The people! The magic . . . highly recommended.
