  1. I read The Bird in the Tree ages ago but it took me a while to get my hands on the sequel, Pilgrim’s Inn. I finally did get a copy several months ago but haven’t read it. Maybe I’ll try to read it this week!

  2. Oh, yay, you’re celebrating Elizabeth Goudge again! I shall re-read one (or more) of my favorites in honor of her birthday. I’m wavering between Gentian Hill and The Rosemary Tree… although I also love Linnets and Valerians and I’m overdue for a re-read of that one too.

    I had collected used copies of almost all of Goudge’s books at one point. A leaking pipe (while we were away from home) damaged most of them, and I haven’t found many in used bookstores since. Luckily, I had extra copies of a few favorites like Pilgrim’s Inn, A City of Bells, and Gentian Hill. But I need to stock up on Henderson’s copies while they are in print.

    • It’s so nice to see them back in print. I hope we’ll be seeing some more in the future (like A City of Bells, one of my favorites).

  3. I haven’t read any of these, so entered for the chance to get introduced (and of course now I fully intend to look her up in the library anyway).

    • If you’re a newbie, I suggest The Dean’s Watch, Pilgrim’s Inn, or The Scent of Water as an introduction, out of this list. Hopefully you’ll find others at your library too.

    Thanks for this wonderful giveaway. Green Dolphin Street interests me greatly. What captivating and memorable novels.

  5. I really want to read The White Witch, though there were others I also wanted to read. I actually had to quit looking because I became so engrossed, I was losing track of time.

    • Yes, even the descriptions can be very compelling! The White Witch is a wonderful novel that will take you into another place and time. But there’s plenty of time to decide which one you would like (commenting here is not a binding commitment).

  6. I’ve only read The Little White Horse (did a post on it years ago). I’d probably read The Rosemary Tree or The White Witch next, though I wouldn’t mind reading anything by E. Goudge. Thanks for the chance!

    • The White Witch had some interesting echoes of The Little White Horse — there is also a horse/unicorn that appears at significant times. I really hope that you love whatever you choose to read.

  7. Thank you for the giveaway! I’ve read three Elizabeth Goudge novels so far, and they’re all my favorite, haha! The Scent of Water had my favorite location; The Dean’s Watch had my favorite characters and situations; and Green Dolphin Country affected me the most. I loved them all. I think I’d really like to read The Little White Horse next.

    • It’s hard for me to choose one favorite too. I can certainly sympathize with all your choices — and I do think you would like The Little White Horse as well. Thanks for stopping by!

    I’ve read Green Dolphin Street and decided that I wanted to read more of her books. Unfortunately, my local library only has that one so I am grateful for an opportunity to possibly read (and own) another book. Thank you!
