A Book Lovers' Advent Calendar: Day Ten

Oh, my goodness! So many people recommended this book to me I can't even count them all. And I love it -- I can't believe my family never came upon this fantastic story when we were younger. Rumer Godden, people! In This House of Brede is only one of my favorite books of all time.

The Story of Holly and Ivy tells us about an orphan named Ivy, a doll named Holly, and a couple who yearn for a child. So sweet!
