A City of Bells

By Elizabeth Goudge. I read to myself this week instead of to the children while I had a sore throat. Didn’t enjoy her as much as I used to. Once I figured out the plot I ended up just skimming it to get to the end, which seemed hopelessly fanciful and unlikely.Maybe I was just trying to get through it too quickly. Maybe I need to decide that fiction just doesn’t work at such an intensely practical phase of life .

One thought on “A City of Bells”

  1. Sorry you didn’t enjoy the Elizabeth Goudge – you used to love them – at least I thought you did. I know I did – but of course they are rather old fashioned now. Funnily enough I was looking at The Deans Watch in the bookcase the other day and thinking I will read that again soon.
