Witches of Lychford by Paul Cornell is one of my favorite books. I read this novella a few times, listened to the audio. I just enjoy Cornell’s writing. He wrote tie in novels for Doctor Who and other assorted fantasy books.
In this story, there was something wrong in Lychford. A heated debate within the community about a new megastore being built. There is something evil afoot and the town’s witch, Judith Mawson is determined to find out what it is. In the process she recruits the new Vicar Lizzie and her friend the magic shop owner Autumn to help.
I love the book because it kind of is a commentary about life in England, and the world for that matter. The division we feel or are meant to feel. Right vs Left. Fascists vs Ant-Fascists. Supper super big chain grocers vs local grocery stores. Then throw in elements of the supernatural. That is what this book, the whole series is about.
Witches of Lychford was published on 2015. The audio program that I listened to was narrated Marisa Calin.
