Correct Pronunciation

I’ve had the happy experience of “finding” books by Elizabeth Goudge by chance when I was browsing through the shelves of my local library. She has become one of my favourite authors. I would like to be certain that I am pronouncing her name correctly Could you e-mail the pronunciation of her name to me? I have been pronouncing it “gooj.” Thank you for your help.

Hi Elaine
Your email got me thinking.

I don’t think you are that far off the correct pronunciation, its pronounced Goog the g sounding like the g in Giraffe, Geranium , rather than j as in jar The d is silent.
Does that help?

regards Deborah
