Green Dolphin Street by Elizabeth Goudge is the story of unrequited love and disappointment, but it is also filled with the lesson to be satisfied no matter what end of the stick you received out of absolute necessity. It took me a long time to get through and it didn’t really get good until the end. I enjoyed it most of the time however, and I’m told it was a popular read when it came out in 1944. It was even adapted to film in 1947. I do think it’s worth giving it a read, even if you must get through the first 300 pages to get to the meat of it. 😬

I read the book years ago and don’t remember much about it. I always liked Elizabeth Goudge’s books. Maybe this is one I should read again.

Yeah, it was really good, but a little slow in the middle. The end was excellent!
I should read it again. I’m sure I would enjoy it.
