Summary from Goodreads:

Life is hard enough for a teenage girl in 1950s suburbia without having a mother who may—or may not—be a witch. A single mother at that. Sure, she fits in with her starched dresses, string of pearls, and floral aprons. Then there are the hushed and mystical consultations with neighborhood women in distress. The unsavory, mysterious plants in the flower beds. The divined warning to steer clear of a boyfriend whose fate is certainly doomed. But as the daughter of this bewitching homemaker comes of age and her mother’s claims become more and more outlandish, she begins to question everything she once took for granted.

Do you know how hard it is to find short stories at the digital library? Good thing this one was free to listen to on Amazon Prime.

Of course I was drawn to this book because of the author, and it wasn't a disappointment. It was fun and mysterious. How could I pass up a free book about a witch for a mother and a garden gnome for a father. This is great!

This was a short hour listen, that filled a quiet lull in my day with a fun short story. A wonderful read.
