Product Description

Mary Lindsay is a born and bred Londoner who has enjoyed her city life-a prestigious job, and friends with whom she takes in the city pleasures of theatre, art and music. But fleeting memories of a childhood visit to her father's elderly cousin out in the country are revived with the news that the woman has willed her home, the Laurels, to Mary. She makes an uncharacteristically sudden and life-changing decision to leave London for the country. The gradual unfolding of her understanding of herself, of the now-deceased woman who has bequeathed her home to Mary, and of the people of Appleshaw, all weave together in a most memorable story of love's redemptive power.

Publisher's Description

A captivating story filled with English charm, luminous wisdom, and astounding spiritual insight

Goudge’s singular gift is the depth and insight she brings to her characters. Mary Lindsay is a born and bred Londoner who has enjoyed her city life—a prestigious job, and friends with whom she takes in the city pleasures of theatre, art and music. But fleeting memories of a childhood visit to her father’s elderly cousin out in the country are revived with the news that the woman has willed her home, the Laurels, to Mary. She makes an uncharacteristically sudden and life-changing decision to leave London for the country. The gradual unfolding of her understanding of herself, of the now-deceased woman who has bequeathed her home to Mary, and of the people of Appleshaw, all weave together in a most memorable story of love’s redemptive power.

Customer Reviews:
"I am not a person who re-reads books, but this is one that I feel the need to read again on a regular basis. I wish this would be published again so I could share it with more people. Just reading the book felt like someone had given me a special gift."

"It’s hard to describe this lovely, enchanting book. It’s one of my favorite books and I periodically reread it. It has lovely descriptions of Nature and is a story about the most sacred mystery there is: Love, all kinds of Love. This is probably one of the most life-affirming books I have ever read."

Author Bio

Elizabeth Goudge was a British novelist (1900–1984) born into the home of an Anglican priest and theologian. She wrote children’s books as well as novels—her Green Dolphin Street was made into an Academy-Award winning film. In style and themes she parallels English writers such as the creator of the Miss Read series as well mirroring the spiritual depth found in George MacDonald’s Victorian novels. She won the Carnegie Award in 1947 for The Little White Horse, which is J. K. Rowling’s favorite children’s book.

    Elizabeth Goudge is one of my favorite classic authors. She has a special gift for making you want to be a better person. She understands what it is like to be in pain and I have saved several quotes from her works. Sadly, her books have been out of print for many years, which makes them hard to find to purchase. I'm hoping that Christian Book publishers will make more of her works available. I'm thankful that "The Scent of Water" is available at such a reasonable price.

    This review was written for The Scent of Water - eBook.
    Almost anything by Elizabeth Goudge is bound to get a five-star rating from me, and The Scent of Water is no exception. This story of people maintaining their Christian values in a changing world is still as fascinating to me as it was when I read it 25 years ago.

    I am so excited to see an Elizabeth Goudge book brought back into print. She is a wonderful author with depth of character and plot and a Christian world view that is so refreshing to get lost in and find ideas of eternal value. This one is one of my favorites! I hope to see more of her books back in print!
