Publisher's Summary

Professor Norman Saylor considered magic nothing more than superstition. Then he learned that his own wife was a practicing sorceress. But he still refuses to accept the truth…that in the secret occult warfare that governs our lives, magic is a matter of life and death. And that unbeknownst to men, every woman knows it. Filmed twice, as Weird Woman (1944) and Burn Witch Burn (1961), this tale of secret witchcraft on a modern college campus is as enjoyable today as the day it was written.

Great Book Read by a Good Narrator!

Conjure Wife is one of those books that gets better the more you read it. I originally watched the movie adaptation, Burn Witch Burn (or Night of the Eagle) and thought it was great. So I checked out the book and gave it a read - definitely great! Then I purchased the audio book as I was craving to read it again, and I like it even more! Victor Bevine did a good job narrating the novel and kept my interest throughout.

The book follows Norman, a university professor, and his discovery that his wife and the other faculty's wives are all practicing witchcraft in order to progress their husband's careers. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to listening to it again!

enjoyable modern fantasy

this novel actually holds up rather well considering when it was written and i enjoyed it. a modern witchcraft type tale that still works, perhaps not mean and gritty but good. think Witches of Eastwick, or Practical Magic. it's companion piece, Our Lady of Darkness didn't work at all for me however.
