One thought on “Rosemary Sutcliff’s signed copy of Elizabeth Goudge’s novel The White Witch”
I’ve often thought that Rosemary must have read “Towers in the Mist” (possibly the reason I applied to Oxford!) because of a few small things in “The Armourer’s House”; and Hugh’s love for Oxford in “Brother Dusty-Feet.”
