Books have to be heavy because the world's inside them. - Cornelia Funke
Haven't heard of this author before, so I've just been over to Amazon to check her out, and she's very appealing. Thanks for the tip.
As a child, The Child From the Sea was one of my favorites. As I've reread it as an adult I see that much of the subject matter was not really for children! but I think I felt a kindred spirit with Lucy as a child. And the parts about the sin-eater have stuck with me and popped up now and then in other contexts. I love Elizabeth Goudge's books. Linnets and Valerians was also one of my favorites. I remember my mother reading it to me when I was 3 or 4 years old. Now, as an adult, The Dean's Watch and Island Magic are my favorites.Thank you for discussing such wonderful books!Melanie
Mel, thanks for leaving a comment. I have not read Island Magic or Linnets and Valerians so thanks for your input.
