Riassunto: The Herb of Grace (1948) is the second book in Elizabeth Goudge's Eliot family trilogy. This series, Goudge's personal favorite among her creations, centers on the warm and wise presence of matriarch Lucilla Eliot and the sheltering spirit of her home, Damerosehay. The Herb of Grace paints a vivid picture of post-World-War-II life in an old English inn, as the Eliots and their guests grapple with old loves and dark secrets, struggling to break free from the past and embrace new lives. [This novel was also published under the title Pilgrim's Inn. Also available in this series: The Bird in the Tree (Book One), and The Heart of the Family (Book Three).]
L'autore: Elizabeth de Beauchamp Goudge was born on April 24th 1900 in Wells, Somerset, where her father was Principal of Wells Theological College. Although she had privately intended writing as a career, her parents insisted she taught handicrafts in Oxford. She began writing in her spare time and her first novel ISLAND MAGIC, set in Guernsey, was a great success here and in America. GREEN DOLPHIN COUNTRY (1944) projected her to fame, netting a Literary Guild Award and a special prize of GBP30,000 from Louis B. Mayer of MGM before being filmed. In her later years Elizabeth Goudge settled in Henley-on-Thames. She died on April 1st, 1984.
