About the Author

Elizabeth Goudge (1900–1984) was a British novelist born into the home of an Anglican priest and theologian. She wrote children’s books as well as novels—her Green Dolphin Street was made into a 1947 Academy-Award winning film starring Lana Turner, Van Heflin, and Donna Reed. In style and themes she parallels English writers such as the creator of the Miss Read series, as well mirroring the spiritual depth found in George MacDonald’s Victorian novels. A Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, she won the Carnegie Award in 1947 for The Little
White Horse
, which is J. K. Rowling’s favorite children’s book.
