    She had a fine teacher during a sojourn at a good progressive school in England who recognized her potential and asked her not to even try to publish anything until she was 26, which promise Godden kept. Her books were critically acclaimed from the beginning, both in England and the United States. Godden grew up inseparable from her older sister Jon, a talented writer whose bouts of mental illness impeded her stamina and prevented her achieving the same stature as Rumer. But thou who both hast sons, and livest in that end of the world, wherein now is the time not of casting stones, but of gathering; not of embracing, but of abstaining from embracing; [] when the Apostle cries out, "But this I say, brethren, the time is short; it remains, that both they who have wives be as not having;" [] assuredly if thou hadst sought a second marriage, it would have been no obedience of prophecy or law, no carnal desire even of family, but a mark of incontinence alone. Metzgar emphasizes that grief is not limited to the death of a loved one. The Preacher has been enumerating all the various vicissitudes of prosperity and adversity, of construction and destruction, of society and solitude, … Alexander Maclaren—Expositions of Holy Scripture But Thou who Both Hast Sons, and Livest in that End of the World

    Rumer was branded a "liar" for telling exaggerated stories about India; and when Jon had malaria she was accused of "rubbing the thermometer on her blanket - a school trick we poor innocents had never heard of - and she was told to get up, dress and go back to her class at once. Also interesting is learning how the events in her life inspired her books. Margaret Metzger encourages the reader to proceed slowly, giving oneself the gift of time, even when it comes to reading the book. A deluge.

    They're GOOD, but not to the level of her fiction. Give it a positive order. What I loved about this small Rumer Godden inserted mid-book is the kind of thinking we, the reader, are invited to take on as our own. She works with individuals, grief groups, hospice and other professional caregivers, schools and religious groups. Metzgar says, "Grief responses vary from person to person, situation to situation.

Time to dance, no time to weep book

The care and coherence of her novels is in absolute contrast to the chaos of her life, but she certainly lived things fully and completely as she was in the midst of them! Too much of too much. After being abandoned by her husband, Godden and her daughters spent one particularly happy period, penniless, in a simple mountain house in Kashmir.

There is nothing else because there was nothing else. When we experience a major loss, we become bewildered by the feelings and thoughts we experience, the comments made to us, and even the physical symptoms we may suffer.

Not better. Most of her childhood was spent in a big house in a small town in the Narayanganj in present-day Bangladesh. The book ends with her return to England. Simply not done, my dear, especially if one is of the upper class. The Preacher has been enumerating all the various vicissitudes of prosperity and adversity, of construction and destruction, of society and solitude, … Alexander Maclaren—Expositions of Holy Scripture But Thou who Both Hast Sons, and Livest in that End of the World Not a useless sluggard-life, but a life which connects together enjoyment and labour, is that which Koheleth thinks the best in the world.

Not worse. Five years later, when Mam and her four daughters returned to India, Rumer and Jon were debutantes, and Rumer, who had never had a beau, was so flattered that she almost married at However, given the time at which Godden wrote the bookI am appalled at her failure to acknowledge her position as a privileged member of the Raj and that she did not truly know 'the real India,' nor did she apparently care to.
