Elizabeth Goudge Day is coming!

EGButton2016_edited-1This is just a quick note to remind everyone that in one month, I’m planning to celebrate Elizabeth Goudge’s birthday on April 24. That means that I’ll be reading and posting about one of her books, and I hope that you will consider doing the same.

If you haven’t yet encountered this wonderful author, take a look at previous posts from the blog to see if she might be to your taste. There’s also a book list and links to last year’s Elizabeth Goudge Reading Week here.

Thanks to Hendrickson Publishers, I’ll also be offering a giveaway. The winner gets to pick one of their new Goudge reissues — of which the latest is The White Witch. Details to come!

Will you participate? What are you planning to read? I have The Rosemary Tree, Gentian Hill, and Towers in the Mist on my shelf, but I’m not sure which I’ll pick up yet. If you have a favorite to recommend, please let me know.

  1. I really hope I can participate. I’m glad I discovered this even’t on Jane’s blog – Beyond Eden Rock. I might reread The Little White Horse but I also got her autobiography The Joy of Snow and Green Dolphin Country on my piles.


  2. I recently re read The Dean’s Watch and enjoyed it even more than before….and had forgotten how much depth there is to it….I now rank it with The Scent of Water among my favourites.


  3. I’m glad you’re hosting this again. I’ll definitely try to take part. As I enjoyed The Child from the Sea last year, I’m thinking about reading The White Witch this time.
