The Middle Window by Elizabeth Goudge (2008)
  catalogermom | Aug 18, 2014 |
Early Goudge, with a feel that she'd not yet hit her straps as a writer. Still an interesting read, though not the best book of hers to start with! ( )

Book description
Judy Cameron is ever so bored with modern London and her glamorous, perfect life. Stifled, her imagination seizes on a picture she sees in a shop window, a picture of the Scottish wilds. It inspires her.

Strong-willed, she prevails on her parents and fiance to change their summer plans and head for cold, damp Scotland--sure that there she will find the freedom she craves.

She finds that she knows everything about the old house and glen - and about Ian MacDonald the Laird. She felt so unaccountably at home in her Scottish holiday surroundings. But why is she deathly afraid of the middle window in the parlour?

Then in a dream, Judy learns the story of an earlire Judith whose destiny bewitches the modern Judy. The pain and glory of a former love set her young hear free, and she is swept into the magical stream of a spendid past...and a radiant future.

The spell of the past was on them... And they were possessed by love. The mountatins, the old house, the people, and especially the young lad...
