Chute's best-known novel, a critic described Greenwillow as "a deeply moving, gently humorous and serenely wise story of young love and self-discovery. Greenwillow was brought to the Broadway stage in 1960, starring Anthony Perkins, with book by Lesser Samuels and Frank Loesser, and music and lyrics by Frank Loesser. Anthony Perkins was simultaneously filming Alfred Hitchcock's classic shocker Psycho while rehearsing Greenwillow. Chute, the fantasy is set in the magical town of Greenwillow, where the eldest in each generation of Briggs men must obey the "call to wander", while the women they leave behind care for the home and rear their children in the hope that some day their husbands will return.

In this timeless and lyrical fable that was made into a Broadway musical, a young man is convinced that he is doomed to wander and tells the girl he loves that he can never marry.

Reviews about Greenwillow (7):
This is a rather sweet, old-fashioned romance; today it might be classified in the Christian lit genre. But it is winsome and fresh, even after sixty years, in its portrayal of a timeless village and its quirky inhabitants, and the leisurely realization of the call to love and land. A great book for refocusing world-weary minds on the most basic and enduring of human desires and values.
Like many other reviewers of this small classic, I first read it as a teenager. I can't wait to share it with my granddaughter. My original copy is in tatters, so I have ordered another copy for me and one for my daughter and granddaughter. The magic of the village and its inhabitants is reminiscent of Treegap in Tuck Everlasting (written almost twenty years later), but the magic of Greenwillow is the realistic, comfortable, and available sort of magic that is firmly rooted in the traditional values of family, love, and friendship. You'll empathize with the villagers, laugh with them (and even, though not cruelly, AT a few of them), hope with them, and cry with them, sharing their struggles, trials, and triumphs from beginning to end. This is a book to be read, reread, and shared - there's no growing tired of the story, its characters, or its truths. Keep it on your top shelf where it's always accessible!
Hello, I am Deanie Hoyt. You may know that the 1950's brought a host of very odd books. I'd look and not buy, but for some reason I latched onto Greenwillow--maybe I opened it, read a line or two, saw it was not sick. I was working and studying hard in those years and the book got lost until December, 1977, when someone tidied up my library shelves. I picked up the little green book, read it, and was humbled. Christmas that year took on new meaning as I lived it with the people of Greenwillow, painted in soft, non-Fiftyish form. Ever since, I've looked forward to reading it every December, but I must not tell you about Greenwillow's people...nor about the pig...nor about the teensy cakes fresh from the oven with berried sugar oozing from their tops, causing blissful fragrance to waft across hedges to grace the air about the Reverend Birdsong (who may or may not have been sent by the Bishop). No, I want you to meet everyone on your own. Then, you'll know why I read Greenwillow every December, gathering its people to my heart, and thanking God for this precious Christmas gift to enjoy while celebrating the birth of Jesus: a time when even the cows kneel all over the world.
One of the best books I have ever read -- BJ Chute has woven a tale of loyalty, love and humor into a timeless classic. The whimsical town of Greenwillow will draw you in and keep you hooked until the very last page. Chute's characters are eccentric and irresistible -- you'll read of sweet Dorie who bakes bilberry tarts and dreams of a happy ending; the cow that kneels down at Christmas; two Reverends battling over good and evil -- and Gideon, who loves the land with a passion we can only envy. I've read this book at least 15 times, and have never gotten tired of it -- in fact, its appeal grows with each passing year.
The book was a gift for my wife. She had a copy, but forgot it on a passenger plane. It has long been out of print, so she was very happy to receive a replacement.
This book is such a classic piece of work! I'm surprised that Greenwillow hasn't received MORE attention through the ages - it's that good.
The story is sweet, the writing just what it should be - it's just a good book. If you like Lark Rise to Candleford, then you'll love this!
My favorite book of all time. One of the few books I have re-read. Many times! Such a sweet story and absolutely beautifully written. Also, "safe" enough to read to my tween daughter, who loved it too!
One of my favorite purchases. I had looked for this book for over fifteen years, when a few days ago I thought "Do you suppose I can get used books on Amazon?' I checked and yes you had it! Great shape & a wonderful book that I plan to keep on my shelves.
