The Little White Horse
Today I'm sharing a book from one of my all-time favorite writers, The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge. Newly orphaned Maria Merryweather goes to live at Moonacre Manor, a family estate. While there, she discovers a family curse and an ancient feud with a neighboring family. Is Maria the one prophesied to end the curse? The Little White Horse is a charming story of bravery, redemption, and hope.
