Publisher's Description

One was born a certain sort of person, and though by ceaseless struggle one might become as nice as that sort of person ever is, one could never become as nice as a nicer sort of person. Elizabeth Goudge, Towers in the Mist

It is late sixteenth-century London when awkward teenage Faithful travels to Oxford to study in England's great university. When Canon Leigh takes him in, Faithful enters into a family as exciting and educational as the university itself. Woven into the narratives of Faithful and the canon's daughter Joyeuce is Oxford during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I with the pomp and sordidness of the spectacular era of England's Golden Age. Not only a historical journey, Towers in the Mist is also a coming-of-age tale of young love and hope.

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.

    This is a marvelous book. Goudge's writing style and descriptive talent make the reading a joy. The characters are interesting and fully developed. She mixes in actual historical figures, which makes the time period interesting.
