Those familiar with the novels of Elizabeth Goudge
may find this a lovely reading choice for Christmas.
The scene on the front cover makes me wish
I could step right into it for a little while
and experience the snowy English Christmas
of an earlier age.
Which story would I choose to drop into?
I think it would have to be The Dean's Watch.
What about you?
Whichever story, time or place one might choose,
there is no doubt that a generous measure of Christmas light
shines through this entire collection,
to bring a joyful tear to the eye,
and warm glow to the heart,
the occasional touch of humor
and the fragrance of love.
