    Book details

The third in the classic family saga about the Eliots of Damerosehay.

Despite the success and acclaim he has found as an actor, David Eliot struggles with the demands of his career. His brittle conversation and seeming arrogance earn him the dislike of his new secretary, Sebastian Weber.

But when Sebastian visits David's family home, he discovers a different side to his employer. As Damerosehay and its inhabitants weave their magic, Sebastian slowly begins to lay his own demons to rest.

Review Text

  • By The other one on 8 June 2014

    The third book and more mystical still! A gentle story telling the anguish of having lived through the second world war. Uplifting and inspiring.

  • By Betty Ann Penfold on 26 October 2015

    The second book in the trilogy of the enchanting Eliot family. A delightful story which allows the reader a little adult escapism. Perhaps a little too much in the way of philosophical & theological musing. Nevertheless, a happy choice.

    I am a very senior citizen and have read many books in my time but for some reason always avoided books by Elizabeth Goudge. Now that they are old they are quite difficult to obtain but I managed to get the Eliot Triology of which "Heart of the Family" is the third. I found the whole series very pleasant and enjoyable especially due to the fact that they didn't contain bad language or explicit sex in these days when books are full of such. I am now reading "Three Cities of Bells" by the same author. I am glad I eventually decided to read Elizabeth Goudge books.

    Finally, my favourite author has started to appear on Kindle. Love all of Goudges books and waiting for more especially the rest of this series. Be warned though, if you haven't read the first two this will contain many spoilers.

    I first read this trilogy when it was written, about 70years ago when I was 23 and I am interested to find that I feel exactly the same about them as I did then. Well written, excellent evocative descriptions of houses and scenery, but it found I couldn't like most of the characters I was meant to like, especially the self-satisfied, self-centred old woman everyone loved so much. I quite hated her for her treatment of her daughter. I know her daughter didn't mind but I did. I felt she was quite heartless about the tea trolley, not minding abut that an old woman had to totter in with a heavy tea-tray. I had a lot of sympathy for Nadine. Still, it was interesting for to find that I still felt the same.

    Elizabeth Goudge is great if you like older style writing which I do. Her characters are real and she has great insight into human character and the struggles they all face.It wouldn't suit everyone but I love her books. They are great if you don't want swearing or modern values jumping off the page all the time but prefer writing without offence but still enjoy a good story.

  • By Morag Smith on 18 October 2013

    I love all Elizabeth Goudge's books Because they are beautifully and sesitively wtitten. The descriptive writing is superb and she makes all the characters come alive.

    Once again we are part of the Eliot family. Rich tapestry of emotions. Sorry to know this was the end of reading about these characters.
