Publisher's Description

In the raw aftermath of World War II, the Wentworth family faces fundamental questions about living together and loving each other despite their differences. John Wentworth, a country vicar caught between leading his family and his church, is far less ineffectual than he feels himself to be. His wife Daphne hardly realizes how much she loves her exasperating husband. While John's great aunt lives in the dilapidated family manor house, their three daughters attend a dysfunctional school, captive among embattled staff. Harriet, John's aging former nanny, holds the family together through her love and empathy.

When Michael Stone returns to town, recently released from prison and unwittingly discovering his former flame, he disrupts the lives of all including his own. But it could be just the disturbance the family needs to break free from their prisons, as they begin to discover how life can be transformed by second chances.

With her characteristic lyricism, Elizabeth Goudge explores the dynamics of ordinary human existence. Her writing guides us to see the beauty in our social and spiritual lives.

Elizabeth Goudge (1900 1984) was a British novelist whose father was an Anglican priest and theologian. She wrote for many audiences, and her Green Dolphin Street was made into a 1947 Academy Award-winning film starring Lana Turner, Van Heflin, and Donna Reed. In style and themes she parallels English writers such as the creator of the Miss Read series, as well as mirroring the spiritual depth found in George MacDonald's Victorian novels. A Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, she won the Carnegie Award in 1947 for The Little White Horse, J. K. Rowling's favorite children's book.
