a lovely read
I recently picked up The Little White Horse, a book that was one of my favorites when I was younger. Now I remember why. Elizabeth Goudge is an excellent writer, but her childrens' books are simply magical. I can see all the scenes unfolding in front of me in technicolor, and I want to step inside the story. This is a fairytale of the sweetest sort, of family and love, and, above all, character. People are valued for their hearts and differences in appearance are cherished. It's truly sweet in the finest sense.
