The House at the End of Hope Street

Title: The House at the End of Hope Street
Author:  Meena van Praag
Publisher: Viking
ISBN: n/a
Why Read?: For Fun
Challenges: British, 100 Books in a Year

Thoughts: This novel about lost women is the perfect book to get lost in.  The literary references are fun, as in getting to know the current residents of the house at the end of Hope Street.  The story meandered with a fluidity that shouldn't have worked as well as it did.  This is a wonderful example of magical realism.

Rating: 4 stars
