This is an auction for THE DEAN'S WATCH by Elizabeth Goudge. reviews:

"A compelling saga of an unlikely friendship threaded together by redemption and grace. The setting is a remote mid-nineteenth-century town in England and its grand cathedral. The cathedral Dean, Adam Ayscough, holds a deep love for his parishioners and townspeople, but he is held captive by an irrational shyness and intimidating manner. The Dean and Isaac Peabody, an obscure watchmaker who does not think he or God have anything in common, strike up an unlikely friendship. This leads to an unusual spiritual awakening that touches the entire community. A richly imaginative and inspiring story with appealing and unique characters, this novel is a favourite of Goudge s fans."

"FIVE STARS!! This novel takes place in a remote Cathedral city in England; the reader is drawn into various peoples' lives, central among them the Dean of the Cathedral. It is the story of the way that this humble man, who is unaware of the impact of his simple love for God and his fellow man, deeply affects many in his city. It is a beautifully told story of the healing power of love. Highly recommended."

"The setting is a cathedral city in the fens, populated with charmingly depicted characters. The main character is the old Dean, known in the town as a fierce and relentless man due to his hunting down of the city's corruption. And yet, the Dean is a misunderstood man. The Dean owns a beautiful watch that becomes the starting point for a new friendship, and new hope. A lovely tale, with enough depth to grasp sceptical readers like myself."
