Author note: Rumer Godden

Julie at Happy Catholic writes about the author Rumer Godden and her books, and links to what others have written.

As a side note, I am beginning to feel like the last person in America who hasn't read Godden's In This House of Brede. I know I've read reviews and discussions of it on several blogs, at any rate. A surprising variety of people seem to really like this book. (Yes, it's on my to-read list. I'm getting to it, really...)

If you've got a suitable-for-this-blog post on a Rumer Godden book, feel free to drop a link in the comments box. The more the merrier.

I wrote about Pippa Passes here. And I wrote about In This House of Brede here. I think Ms. Godden is great when she's great, and sometimes not-so-great

Sherry, Thanks for the input. (And thanks for the content warning on Pippa Passes.)

My favorite book by Rumer Godden is China Court. It's lovely. As far as children's books go, Miss Happiness and Miss Flower is one of my favorite books from my childhood.
