Elizabeth Goudge was truly a magician at creating interwoven, flavorful worlds with stories within stories and characters I would love to have for neighbors. Pilgrim's Inn is an old fashioned story about spiritual strengths and weaknesses; about growth, maturity and the child likeness we should all retain. Set in one of those magical places that is so ordinary, a Girls School, it winds its way through to a love story, happy ending. I loved these people and their stories and was very happy that some of them showed up again in other of her works!!
