Book Review: The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge

Synopsis: 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?

 My Review 

I really enjoyed this book, it was pretty amazing. I don't really read older books but i gave this a try because i loved the movie 'The secret of Moonacre' (2008). The Writing Style that Elizabeth writes is beautiful. The way everything is described is amazing, so detailed yet so brilliant. I simply adored how each Character was written. Maria the main character of 'The Little White Horse' was a stunningly written  person. I also loved Robin as a Character. As i said i don't read older books as the language that is used confuses me, but the way this was written i could understand it completely, and was not confused at any point. Even though it is a Children's book i enjoyed it immensely. I Rated this Books a 4.5 Stars out of 5. 


I am also doing the Eclectic Reader Challenge 2013, this books is in the categories of 4. Made into a Movie, The book of the Little White Horse was made into a Movie called The Secret of Moonacre.
