The White Witch

The White Witch
Elizabeth Goudge
historical fiction
1 star
439 pages

This book, the last Goudge book I plan on reading, typifies what I dislike about her. A banal, feel good, all good things are God mix. Her obvious dislike of an ordered Christian life comes through very strongly in this book. There is no such thing as “white” magic and Goudge refuses to acknowledge that. In her world there is God, “good spirits” and “bad spirits”, 3 sources, not just 2. Her sentimental blather about children, nature, love, and life itself really got on my nerves. I couldn’t recommend this to anyone.
