Giveaway: The House at the End of Hope Street

Summary: Distraught that her academic career has stalled, Alba is walking through her hometown of Cambridge, England, when she finds herself in front of a house she’s never seen before, 11 Hope Street. A beautiful older woman named Peggy greets her and invites her to stay, on the house’s usual conditions: she has ninety-nine nights to turn her life around. With nothing left to lose, Alba takes a chance and moves in.

She soon discovers that this is no ordinary house. Past residents have included Virginia Woolf and Dorothy Parker, who, after receiving the assistance they needed, hung around to help newcomers—literally, in talking portraits on the wall. As she escapes into this new world, Alba begins a journey that will heal her wounds—and maybe even save her life.

Filled with a colorful and unforgettable cast of literary figures, The House at the End of Hope Street is a charming, whimsical novel of hope and feminine wisdom that is sure to appeal to fans of Jasper Fforde and especially Sarah Addison Allen. -- Penguin

Last year, I read a book that was a little outside my comfort zone. It was called THE HOUSE AT THE END OF HOPE STREET by Menna Van Praag. This novel definitely had it's fair share of magic which doesn't always work for me, but it was, most of all, a book about hope. I just loved so many of the messages and how it made me feel! You can read my review here.

To celebrate the paperback release of THE HOUSE AT THE END OF HOPE STREET, I have a copy to share with one lucky reader courtesy of the publisher.

This looks really unique. Thanks for the giveaway. And I can't wait to hear what you think of Whistling Past the Graveyard. I've been wondering about that one.
