The Little White Horse

 

by Elizabeth Goudge

1946

Some fellow reader on tumblr recommended this book to me.  I wish that I could remember who, so that I could heartily thank them, because I loved every page of this book.  I really have no idea how to describe this book.  It was like a flower–beautiful, delicate, fragrant, old-fashioned, simple yet complex, uplifting.  Okay, so that’s a bit sappy, but still true.  This book was just wonderful.

I don’t really want to go into the storyline for fear of giving too much away, but I would like to note that I do not usually enjoy books that mix religion with magic.  But this book did it just perfectly–magic somehow became miracles, and the beauty of believing in God was not at all belittled or mocked; in fact, it was an important part of the tale.

By all means, find and read this book.  I will definitely be looking up more books by Elizabeth Goudge in the future!

5/5.
