Elizabeth Goudge Giveaway

Posted April 20, 2017 by Lory in events, giveaways / 21 Comments

I’m pleased to announce that once more Hendrickson Publishers has offered to sponsor a giveaway in connection with Elizabeth Goudge Day, which will take place on her birthday, April 24. This giveaway will be open internationally; if located in the US winner will receive book directly from the publisher, other countries from Book Depository.

This year’s offering is Towers in the Mist, one of Goudge’s early novels which she wrote to explore the Elizabethan past of her beloved Oxford, and dedicated to her father, the Regius Professor of Divinity at Christ Church. I’ll be reviewing it later this week if you’d like to know more.

Please see this link for more of the EG titles currently available from Hendrickson. I’m so glad they’ve been reissuing these lovely books, and hope you will help us to celebrate them.

    I want to read The Rosemary Tree. Thank you very much for this amazing giveaway, I haven’t read this one either 🙂

  2. Sadly, I haven’t read anything by Elizabeth Goudge – I really like the sound of the Elizabethan past of Oxford. Thank you for hosting another lovely giveaway 🙂

    • You’re welcome, Jessica. I hope you’ll read something by Elizabeth Goudge at some point — I think you might really like her.

  3. Hallo, Hallo Lory! 🙂

    Travelling through the blogs I enjoy reading – caught sight of your review for ‘Towers in the Mist’ and decided to participate in the bookaway. She’s a #newtomeauthor therefore, I appreciated reading your review and gaining insight into the author’s approach: how her research fuells her writing and how she styles her novels to give the reader an appreciation for the era she’s writing but not to shy away from it as some parts of history are harder to approach/read due to the climate of the times.

    One thing I enjoy about your reviews, their similar to mine – you dig into the heart of the stories your reading and give a visitor a good representation of how the book settled with you as you read it. I love this as it helps me get a better impression if I’d enjoy reading the same author.

    To answer your question, I’d like to start with “Towers in the Mist” and see what you saw, as my gateway into this author’s collective works.

    • Thanks for your kind words, Jorie! My favorite part of blogging is introducing others to books and authors that I love. I hope you’ll enjoy this one too.

  4. Wow…that’s fantastic news. Towers in the Mist looks really interesting. I like the publishers page about Elizabeth Goudge. It’s very informative.

    I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite, because it’s actually the only book I’ve read from her, but I really liked The Rosemary Tree ♥ I remember it had a cover that made it look like a romance *not that I don’t like them, but it was not was I was looking for back then*, but it was a fantastic read, a story full of wisdom 🙂
    This is my first time reading about Towers in the Mist, and it looks like a wonderful book! Mostly because I’ve an obsession with books that take place anywhere in the UK, so… Fingers crossed! I’d really like to read this story! Thank you, Lory!! ♥

    • The Rosemary Tree is indeed full of wisdom. And if you are obsessed with books that take place in the UK I’m pretty sure you will find this a wonderful way to visit the Oxford of the past – it’s such a fascinating place at any time of history. Good luck!

        I know! I read OXFORD and knew that I have to read it ♥ Thank you, Lory!
