128 7382 GOUDGE, Elizabeth White Witch, The
Softcover; Trade PB Hendrickson Publishers: MA; c1958, 2016; First US Edition 422 pages New 
A lovely unread copy.; This historical novel, set during the English Civil War in an Oxfordshire village, features the Haslewood family. "In the manor house, Margaret Haslewood and her twin children wait for news of her husband Robert, who has gone to fight for the cause of Parliament. At the hearth of wise and gentle Froniga, whose skill in healing and clarity of moral vision brings life and vigor to the Romani community, and in the painter's brush of young Francis Leyland, who puts his life in the service of the king, Elizabeth Goudge weaves a tale of enduring insight into what makes us feel at home in the world, and the forces that threaten to tear our homes apart." The publisher of this edition added a note that says in part: First written in 1958, this novel "includes many passages that display oppressive attitudes in matters of race relations. ...many Romani people still face discrimination today. We believe that offering this book to readers as Elizabeth Goudge wrote it allows us to see English literary culture in 1958 in a way that would be obscured were we to alter the text. Justice must be based on truth."; "A rich, long panorama of England in the time of Charles I, when Cavalier and Puritan strove for the mastery of the realm. The story opens with the appearance of Francis Leyland in the little village of Flowercote." Recommended by Charlotte K. of the DES email discussion group, Sandi M. and Amy S. of the E Goudge email discussion group and Anne C. of the AT and EG email discussion lists.

Softcover; Mass Market PB Berkley Medallion Books: NY; c1957,1975; Reprint 414 pages Very Good- 
Spine and cover creases, light edgewear, book slightly curved. Pages pale tan but clean and not brittle; none loose. Book says "Large-Type edition" but the text is only slightly larger than most mass market paperbacks. The text is not as large as it is in most large print hardbacks. Also published as 'Sylvester or The Wicked Uncle'. ; We agree with the "Time and Tide" reviewer that said they would place this book as high as "The Grand Sophy". A very enjoyable Regency romp. "When Sylvester, Duke of Saleford, posted into Wiltshire to discover whether the Hon. Phoebe Marlow matched his exacting requirements for a bride, he did not expect that the prospect of an offer from him would cause Miss Marlow to flee from her home." Nor did he know that Phoebe, with her very discerning eye, and gift for mimicry, had written a novel...
