Lolly Willowes by Sylvia Townsend Warner

A middle-aged spinster, after spending her life caring for others, decides to break free from societal expectations by moving to a small village in the countryside. There, she discovers her true identity as a witch and finds contentment in her newfound independence and connection with nature. The novel is a feminist critique of the limited roles available to women in early 20th-century England and a celebration of female autonomy and non-conformity.
