Howl's Moving Castle

Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

Sophie Hatter knows her fate.  When her widowed stepmother, Fanny, looks at the expenses and what the hat shop brings in, she thinks it only reasonable that Fanny apprentices her own daughter, Martha, to a witch, sends her other stepdaughter out to prentice at a bakery, and keeps Sophie with her as an apprentice in the shop.  After all, as the oldest daughter, Sophie's fate will be the worst if she sets out to seek her fortune.
