I suppose it’s rather odd to be reading a book set during Christmas in the middle of February, but I actually bought I Saw Three Ships by Elizabeth Goudge last summer, then put it in my bookcase and promptly forgot about it until a couple of weeks ago. It’s a quaint but moving short tale about a young girl and a series of “miracles” that happen in the seaside town where she lives with two maiden aunts. It has Goudge’s usual wry wit and the language used is old-fashioned yet beautiful.
