  • The saints loved all the creatures, said Peregrine They loved the world too they so loved the world We don t really because we re always choosing He looked up at Elizabeth s dull, bewildered, grow up face.Elizabeth Hargreave left Oxford for the North to study and write on the Northumbrian saints in their own setting The authorities had given this sabbatical year The saints loved all the creatures, said Peregrine They loved the world too they so loved the world We don t really because we re always choosing He looked up at Elizabeth s dull, bewildered, grow up face.Elizabeth Hargreave left Oxford for the North to study and write on the Northumbrian saints in their own setting The authorities had given this sabbatical year a qualified blessing, not understanding that it was the very remoteness of the subject from her own field of philology which drew her to it a complete break from anything connected with her Oxford life and the pain of losing Giles to Priscilla Elizabeth had a fine intellect, a mordant critical faculty and a desolate heart There was stimulus in the challenge to try to understand the characters of a group of men who for her were, in their very nature, supremely baffling Once installed in her room at the lonely house regrettably called but so near the North Sea that at high tide spray flew in at the window, she found herself caught up in other companionship than that of the sea, of her landlady, Mrs Pinchbeck, with her determinedly young and cheerful outlook, and of her cherished white toy poodle, Tattybogle From her first meeting on the shore with the Halliday children, Elizabeth found herself drawn into something she had never known the realities of family life Her appreciation for the Halliday parents grew slowly out of her gratitude for her welcome into this warm, exuberant household, but her friendship with the children ripened quickly and spontaneously, and in the case of Peregrine reached such a pitch of intensity that it not only enriched her understanding of life, but also led her near to disaster Peregrine, with his love of all animals, all weathers, all the world he knew, his intense happiness and unhappiness, was a child with a rare spirit It was he and the new recluse on the Island which Cuthbert s follower, Egfrid, had inhabited some thirteen hundred years before, who gave Elizabeth her first glimmerings of understanding of beasts and saints, simplicity and wisdom, and who set her course for a deeper sea than she would have chosen.
