Reader's note

“In the mid-winter gloom Christmas comes up over the horizon like a lighted ship homeward bound. The arrival has been prepared for and is expected, yet as the archaic shape draws slowly nearer and nearer, the lights of the lanterns reflected in the black water like moons and stars, the sails luminous as huge moths’ wings in the dark, we feel profound relief.” This delightful edition of A Christmas Book by Elizabeth Goudge includes two new complete tales which contain, in the words of The Scotsman, ‘those blend of fairytale grace, human warmth and spiritual feeling which only Elizabeth Gouge can contrive.’ It has seasonal episodes from many of her best-loved books, inducing some of her earliest titles, all full of the enchantment of goodness. It has the awe, expectancy and magic of the season. A book to give and a book to possess.
