Publisher Comments:

"I absolutely adored The Little White Horse."--J.K. Rowling, creator of the Harry Potter series

Winner of the Carnegie Medal

When orphaned young Maria Merryweather arrives at Moonacre Manor, she feels as if she's entered Paradise. Her new guardian, her uncle Sir Benjamin, is kind and funny; the Manor itself feels like home right away; and every person and animal she meets is like an old friend. But there is something incredibly sad beneath all of this beauty and comfort--a tragedy that happened years ago, shadowing Moonacre Manor and the town around it--and Maria is determined to learn about it, change it, and give her own life story a happy ending. But what can one solitary girl do?

Synopsis:

In 1842, newly orphaned Maria Merryweather, her governess, and dog arrive at her ancestral home in an enchanted village in England's West Country where the people's bliss is marred by a dark shadow.

This was a truly delightful book. It was brought back into print when J.K.Rowling the author of the Harry Potter books said that it was her favorite book as a child. Elizabeth Goudge created a world I didn't want to leave.

I love this book! The description makes me want to go to Moonacre Manor, and go into Maria's room. I think that Elizabeth Goudge has captured the story of the curiosity of a young girl in a new place better than anyone. And the sightings of the little white horse only make it more magical. With every turn of the page, you find something new and exciting! Nothing could possibly be left out. This book is a new beginning to the magical world of forests, castles, and animals.
