When the four orphaned Linnet children are sent to live with their nasty grandmother, they decide at once that their new life is unbearable-and run away. Making their way through the English countryside, they first charm the gruff but lovable Uncle Ambrose and his gardener, Ezra, then stumble upon the eccentric Lady Alicia, who seems to have lost her family. And then the real fun begins! The Linnets start their search for the missing Valerians-but will they be thwarted by the witch Emma Cobley and her magic cat?
"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.
