About the Author:

Elizabeth Goudge was born in Somerset, England, in 1900. She is the author of many best-selling books for children and adults, including The Little White Horse, which won the Carnegie Medal for Children s Books, and I Saw Three Ships (David R. Godine, 2008). Goudge, who died in 1984, was among J.K. Rowling s favorite authors as a child, and The Little White Horse was a direct influence on the Harry Potter series.

Review:

A lively, romantic plot, varied and endearingly eccentric characters and picturesque settings. --Booklist

Elizabeth Goudge writes with the gentleness and good humor that have long endeared her to adult readers . . . blending fantasy and fact with the sure touch of the born storyteller. --The New York Times Book Review

An extraordinary and deeply absorbing read from beginning to end, Linnets and Valerians is a terrifically entertaining novel from beginning to end and showcases author Elizabeth Goudge's impressive storytelling abilities. Very highly recommended for community library collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that Linnets and Valerians is also available in a Kindle edition ($8.49). --Julie Summers, Midwest Book Review
