Beyond the Snow: The Life and Faith of Elizabeth Goudge

This is a much-needed study of a remarkable life. Elizabeth Goudge was not only a sensitive and acute artist in fiction, but a profoundly insightful commentator on the processes of growing up spiritually and morally. She fully deserves the kind of sympathetic and appreciative exploration provided by this book.


Rowan Williams, 104th Archbishop of Canterbury

An interesting read, I especially liked how the author used snippets of Elizabeths own work to really help you to get to know Elizabeth better. Sadly though there were places where the book felt a little repetitive and dole, making it hard to stay engaged.

I appreciated the lyrical and informative style, to begin with, but I did grow tired of the repetition of commentary interspersed with quoted paragraphs..!

A very thorough look at Elizabeth Goudge's life. I cannot fault the enormous amount of work Christine Rawlins has put into this biography. A good read.

Elizabeth Goudge as a major 20th century author and Christian writer 1 3 Oct 31, 2015 02:32AM  
Things I love...
My family; my friendly church; books (of course!); music; singing; my home and garden; the sea; being busy; being creative with things like gardening and woodwork; walking in the countryside; historic buildings; theatre and galleries.
Would love to hear from you!
“...as Parson Hawthyn says on receiving the gift of a book in The White Witch: "You give me great wealth, for the gift of a book is the gift of a human soul. Men put their souls in their books."
The soul in the books of Elizabeth Goudge reached out to readers worldwide and surely made of her, not merely a romantic novelist but one of the great Christian writers of the twentieth century.”
