The World of Elizabeth Goudge was privately published by the late Sylvia Gower in 2001, and is incredibly difficult to get hold of now. There are copies advertised on Amazon from £800! We are delighted to be publishing a new edition at a somewhat cheaper price … £13 + overseas postage.
Sylvia Gower wrote about Elizabeth Goudge’s life and writing, and shared her experience of visiting the locations which inspired the settings in her books – for instance, Wells which becomes the fictional Torminster. SG also explored “the reasons for their success and evergreen appeal for today’s readers”. Since 2001, many of EG’s books have remained consistently in print. GGBP have published not only those we have in print today but also Sister of the Angels, currently out of print.
We have discovered that the Goudge Memorial Cross in New Milton has disappeared, just leaving the grave. We should like to restore this, and a Just Giving page has been set up to do this. If you would like to donate, please do so – please do *not* send money to GGBP if you are unable to donate through the Just Giving page – ask someone else to do it for you.
The World of Elizabeth Goudge is printing now and will be published in December 2020.
