Product Description

In the raw aftermath of World War II, this is the story of the Wentworth family. It is the story of John Wentworth-vicar of a church in Devon, England-and his wife Daphne, who feels trapped in the vicarage. While John's great aunt lives in the dilapidated family manor house, their three daughters attend a dysfunctional school, captive among embattled staff and their headmistress. It is only Harriet, John's aging former nanny, who holds the family together through her love and empathy. But when Michael Stone returns to town, recently released from prison and now searching for his former love, Daphne, he is a disruption to the lives of all-including his own-helping to free them from their prisons, both physical and metaphorical.

Author Bio

Elizabeth Goudge (1900-1984) was a British novelist 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 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 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, which is J. K. Rowling's favorite children's book.

    Elizabeth Goudge wrote some of the most beautiful prose I've ever read. Her stories are old-fashioned, but full of incredible word pictures and characters I would love to meet. I'm so glad that someone is republishing these wonderful books!
