I took this photo when I was sitting out on my deck earlier this week. The sun was shining, there was a slight breeze blowing and I was not only savoring the weather, I was savoring this story of the Eliots of Damerosehay.
I know the characters well, but not at this stage of their lives because I have read this trilogy backwards! I first found book three, The Heart of The Family, at an antique store for $2.00 I didn't know it was part of a trilogy, I'd just been looking for books by Elizabeth Goudge on recommendation from Brenda.
A year later I found the second book, Pilgrim's Inn, at a used book store. A few months ago, I bought this one online.
Here is a synopsis of this book -
"Introducing the beloved trilogy that has captured the hearts and imaginations of the many fans of bestselling author Elizabeth Goudge. "The Bird in the Tree "takes place in England in 1938, and follows a close-knit family whose tranquil existence is suddenly threatened by a forbidden love . . . . Matriarch of the family, Lucilla, has spent a lifetime making the Hampshire estate of Damerosehay a haven for the Eliots. When her favorite grandson, David, falls in love with a woman who belongs to another, Lucilla sees her most cherished ambitions put at risk. But can she persuade David and Nadine to put duty before love? Discover why so many have already fallen in love with this favorite of Goudge novels."
Have you read this series or any others by Goudge? When I bought my book online, CBD, was having a sale. Almost half price per book and free shipping, so I bought several other titles by Elizabeth Goudge, so basically I bought four books for the price of two.
The other titles I bought are The Rosemary Tree, The Scent of Water, and Towers in the Mist.
